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.

Upcoming Production

Our second production of 2015, Robin Hood, will run from the 3rd - 12th of July. More information can be found here

Upcoming Clubnight

We will be hosting a club night on Saturday, the 13th of June at 7pm.

We have an action packed night planned involving a range of theatre games, along with some improvisation. Come along and get involved - no acting experience required! If you'd like to come along to be an audience only, that's fine too.

You can choose to organise a team of four in advance, or be placed in a group on the night.

Bring a plate to share, and a gold coin donation if you are not a current financial member of the club.

Upcoming Auditions

Auditions for our third production of 2015, Kings of the Gym, will take place on the 5th of July. More information to follow.
