Formed in 1954, Howick Little Theatre is one of Auckland's foremost community theatres and a leading New Zealand company. 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. The theatre also offers acting classes with a leading professional for people aged six years to adults. And there are often development workshops with leading professionals from the theatre community.
Howick Little Plays
This year sees HLT's inaugural season of Howick Little Plays, an eclectic mix of perfectly formed short plays celebrating invention and imagination. Many are funny, some downright hilarious, some poignant....there’s something for everyone!
