Formed in 1954, Howick Little Theatre is one of Auckland's leading community theatres 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 short-season HLT Studio productions and playreadings.
A bold initiative, the HLT Studio aims to showcase talented new actors, directors and playwrights.
The theatre is always looking for and happy to welcome new volunteers in a range of areas, from set design and building to bartending and ticket selling. Keen to get involved in Auckland theatre? Send us your details and we'll be in touch.
Buying a whole performance 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."
Zonta Club of East Auckland: "Our club takes an annual PlayDate as a fundraiser for our Zonta International Foundation commitment. This is an easy way to raise $1200-$1500 and we value the good relationship with HLT in providing a great experience for all."
HLT’s acting classes have been suspended until further notice because of Covid-19. Please be advised that classes will restart as soon as it is safe for us to do so.
