From the Circa Council

2016 is a special year for Circa Theatre; on April 23rd we celebrated 40 years of New Zealand Theatre.  We are relishing the chance to acknowledge the theatre makers, playwrights, directors and actors that have made our first 40 years such a joy.


Circa has always been focused on the artistry of our theatre makers; so beautifully summed up by Susan Wilson (Circa Council, pictured second from left); “Our goal is to dazzle the audience with the sheer excellence of the performance – to present theatre of the highest possible standard – where economy and ingenuity kept costs at a minimum so that the rewards could be equally shared by artist and practitioners.”

For our birthday year, we present you with the best of New Zealand theatre. We look forward to celebrating it all with you!
