Box Office

HLT’s 61st year of bringing theatre to Auckland starts in March with the hit comedy The Love List, about two friends who make a list of attributes of their perfect woman only to find it needs revising when she arrives on the scene. In May comes Sitting Pretty, in which an unemployed woman takes a job as a life model. In July, we have the topical drama Birthrights, about what happens when one sister agrees to be a surrogate mother for another, then finds she can’t have more children. In September, we mark the anniversary of World War I with the popular drama Mary’s Wedding, about a young couple whose story unfolds as he is about to go off to war. We end the year with the hilarious comedy Seven Year Twitch, about marital disharmony, therapists and birdwatching.

Howick Little Theatre is not just about acting; we pride ourselves on looking after our audience. On opening night we have a gala supper and ask the audience to join the actors after the play for food and wine and good old-fashioned “talk”. There is free parking and we have security services in the car park while you are enjoying the play. Our bar is open before the performance, so in a cosy and pleasant atmosphere you can enjoy time with your friends before the show.

We use iTicket for our bookings and it is easy to do. Have a look at our Showcard subscription, which is the most cost-effective way to buy your tickets, or consider becoming a member of the theatre, which also has its own benefits.

For over 60 years we have been giving audiences special nights, so why not join us this year –- you will be so glad you did.

I look forward to seeing you at the theatre.
