James and the Giant Peach

24 September at 2pm.

Orphaned James is sent to live with his aunts, Spiker and Sponge, after his parents are killed in a tragic accident involving a rhino, but the aunts treat him horribly. One day he meets an old man who gives him a bag containing the strongest magic in the world. When James accidentally spills it near the old peach tree the most marvellous things happen, and this is just the start of his adventures! More details here.

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.
