Supported and developed by Howick Little Theatre, the HLT Studio is a platform for new works and creatives. Its mission is to present three short seasons of plays, as well as staged readings each year. Over the course of the year, we aim to support and showcase new directors, new or inexperienced actors and a new New Zealand playwright. The Studio was founded by Terry Hooper and the Studio Director Nick Martin. Both passionate theatre practitioners, they created this platform to introduce a quality theatre experience that pushes boundaries.
