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.

HLT Studio

The Studio is a bold initiative to showcase talented new directors, emerging actors and new playwrights.

Make a PlayDate

Buying a whole performance of an HLT play is a great way to entertain clients, socialise or raise funds. See the PlayDate group booking page.

Steve Young, Nexia NZ: "Just wanted to say how much my clients and I enjoyed the show last night. Please pass on our sincere thanks to the cast and all of your supporting team. A really enjoyable evening made possible by a lot of work from you guys. Much appreciated." 

Kathy Bigwood, President, Zonta Club of East Auckland: "For the past 10-12 years, our club 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. This is an easy way to raise between $1200 and $1500 and we value the good relationship with HLT in providing a great experience for all.
