Hannah Playhouse

The Hannah Playhouse has hosted hundreds of New Zealand works, with some of New Zealand’s most prolific theatre practioners, and countless audience members coming through our doors.

The Trust has made the Hannah available as a theatre venue for hire, to continue to promote Wellington as a destination of cultural and artistic significance. In 2014 and 2015 this was made possible through Creative New Zealand (CNZ) support, and in 2016 this support was continued by the Hannah Playhouse Trust and by Wellington City Council.

On 1 January 2014  Experience Wellington (previously The Wellington Museums Trust), took the lease on the Hannah Playhouse, to provide a theatre venue for Capital E, the National Theatre for Children. Capital E had been relocated into new premises without theatre facilities, from a venue deemed earthquake prone.
