The Civic Theatre complex provides a quality theatre and associated facilities for hire and is a popular venue for local and regional organisations – and national and international touring companies.
The complex has a Category 1 New Zealand Historic Places Trust classification which means the building is of national significance.
The theatre was built in 1906 and underwent a $15.8 million upgrade in 2004-2005. That project turned the complex into a much-applauded performing arts and events facility that seats 1,015 people. It features state‑of-the-art equipment to make it one of the best theatres in New Zealand for live performance.
Hosting a range of different stage performances from stand up comedy, to ballet, to plays, to musicians and dance - the Civic Theatre has something to entertain everyone!
