Creative Drama Classes at TheatreWorks

Drama Classes for kids aged 7 to 16 are designed to teach theatre skills and experience. The tutor is Robyn Donnelly (BSc, DipDrama). Many children who have been to these classes have subsequently appeared in, stage-managed, written and directed for Mairangi Players and other theatre groups. Full details here.


We have excellent wheelchair access to the auditorium, but unfortunately not to our toilets.
