Formed in 1954, Howick Little Theatre is one of Auckland's leading community theatre groups and a leading company in New Zealand. Each year five main-house plays are staged, many of them premieres, to thousands of people who come from all over Auckland as well as parts of the upper North Island. There are also three HLT Studio productions, which foster new talent, new directors and new writing.

Looking to Fundraise?

If you want to fundraise or socialise, make a PlayDate now. Buying a performance of an HLT play is a great way to raise funds. In the past few years, groups have made around a total of $85,000 by taking an HLT PlayDate. 

Here's what one group said: "For the past 10-12 years, the Zonta Club of East Auckland has taken an annual PlayDate as a fundraiser for our Zonta International Foundation commitment. Many of our guests have become regular theatregoers, while others only come to support the fundraiser, but everyone enjoys the camaraderie of a get-together in a very convivial environment. It helps that HLT productions are always excellent and we try to choose a play we feel will best suit our audience, so that they will keep coming. This is an easy way to raise between $1200 and $1500 and we value the good relationship with HLT and their members in providing a great experience for all. –- Kathy Bigwood, President, Zonta Club of East Auckland
