Whitireia Theatre

Looking for a theatre for your next show? Need a dance studio? Rehearsal space? Meeting room? Then look no further!     The Whitireia Theatre is the home theatre space for the Whtireia Performance Centre. 

Located in the heart of Wellington City in the midst of the theatre and cinema district, it is the perfect place to host small scale shows and productions of various styles – seating up to 144 people on a tiered seating block. The theatre has easy access, and a large foyer area to hold pre and post show functions.

The floor is sprung wood (painted black) – safe and functional for dance productions.

The acoustics in the theatre are ideal for small or large casts.

The theatre is available to book all year around (note that June-July and late September to early December are usually heavily booked for our full time performing arts programmes shows)
