HLT Studio

The HLT Studio, supported and developed by Howick Little Theatre, is a platform for new works and creatives. Our mission is to present three short seasons of plays and a series of regular staged playreadings each year. We introduce new talent to all aspects of theatre, from the technical designers and crew to the production team, directors, actors and more.

 

STUDIO SEASON 2017

PUNCH AND JUDY: THE REAL STORY

A black comedy by Debbie Isitt

Directed by Ian Milnes

Season May 31 to June 3, 8pm. Matinee: June 3, 2pm. Book NOW

Punch and Judy are well known for their wild and physically abusive relationship as puppets on stage, but in this play their relationship is personified to a volatile domestic life off stage.

NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.

 

LOCKDOWN (working title)

A new work by Nik Rolls

Season: October 4-7

This play, currently in development, explores identity. Where does it come from? Why do some have one, and others many? Can it change over time, and how far will we go to protect it?

 

  • Our first production features a first-time director, with an established (usually New Zealand-based) play.
  • The second production is an established play selected for emerging actors to shine, with an experienced director.
  • The third production is a new work written by a new local playwright, supported by an accomplished production team – both on and off stage.

The Studio was founded by Artistic Director Terry Hooper and The Studio Director Nick Martin. Both passionate theatre practitioners, they created this platform to invigorate more quality theatre that pushes the boundaries.

PLEASE NOTE THAT STUDIO PLAYS MAY CONTAIN STRONG LANGUAGE AND ADULT SUBJECT MATERIAL THAT MAY OFFEND SOME PEOPLE.

If you'd like to become involved in The Studio, please message us or come along to our next playreading or production and introduce yourself. We'd love to hear from you. For more details check out: facebook.com/thestudiohlt or email us.
