Who we are

Formed in 1960, we are a small, dynamic and enthusiastic amateur dramatic society based in the small town of Cambridge, New Zealand in the Waikato.We produce four or five shows per year, including 1-act, comedy, drama, thriller and musical productions.We also host visiting groups, social events and the theatre is available for hire at very competitive rates (subject to availability).

Our theatre is located in an old gasworks building (now over 100 years old) and the complex includes: foyer, kitchen, bathrooms, workshop, small bar (wine, beer and soft drinks), the auditorium and stage, dressing rooms, green room and, upstairs, an office, wardrobe and property areas and a separate rehearsal space.The auditorium holds 55 (seated in the usual layout around tables) or 80 (seated in rows for other events).Seasons are typically two weeks in length and include matinee, show only and dinner/show (currently catered by Fran's Cafe).
