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 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. In 2014, HLT will celebrate 60 years of producing community theatre.

Looking to Fundraise?

If you want to fundraise or socialise, make a PlayDate with us now. Buying a performance of a play has proven a lucrative fundraising option. In the past six years close to $85,000 has been made by groups taking advantage of HLT's PlayDate promotion. 

Here's what one group said about their PlayDate night: "The volunteers that were on were so lovely and helpful … I have had a lot of good feedback about the night. I would hold a PlayDate again and would change nothing. Thank you for your help and for allowing non-profits the opportunity to hold fundraising events at your theatre. It is a brilliant idea." –- Melissa Parkes, Fundraising & Communications, Iosis Family Solutions
