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.

FINAL PERFORMANCE: 'The Reluctant Dragon'

For those attending the final production, on Saturday the 23rd, we recommend leaving extra time for parking at the venue. Due to the sheer number of organisations in the area, Recreation Drive can get busy, and sometimes the best place to park is Birkenhead Ave, or surrounding streets.

Our first 'all ages' production of 2016 will take place during the mid-year school holiday break: July 15th - 23rd. More information here.

Auditions: 'Of Mice and Men'

We are still looking for male actors to fill some of the roles in this production. For more information contact the director, Ross, via email:

Specific role information can be found here.
