At Howick Little Theatre, we value volunteers and members and encourage you to get involved. Every year we stage five plays, so there are plenty of areas where you can help, whether it's just a few hours of set building or one front of house per season.
Perhaps you have always wanted to be involved in a play, but didn't know where to start. Working backstage is always fun. Are you artistic? Then set design, prop making, set construction, set painting and organising set decor are important areas for every play. We always need lighting and sound designers and operators and wardrobe co-ordinators for sourcing costumes. Read more in this Aucklander story.
At Howick Little Theatre, you can be as involved as you want to be, so why not join us? It will be the best decision you make today. If you have any questions, email us.
