TheatreWorks' Youth Scriptwriting & Directing Labs

We're very excited to announce that with support from the Kaipatiki Local Board of Auckland Council, TheatreWorks are running professionally-led script-writing and directing labs aimed at 13 to 19 year-olds, and fostering community involvement in theatre.

There will be 10 weeks of labs on Sundays, run by professional tutors, playwright Gary Henderson and theatre director Ben Henson.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic timing of this initiative has changed, but Kaipatiki Local Board have agreed to continue to support us and this will go ahead. Updated details will be available here.

Contact us in the usual ways if you have any questions.

Creative Drama Classes at TheatreWorks

Drama Classes for kids aged 7 to 15 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.
