Kia Ora and welcome to Circa Theatre’s exciting and eclectic 2018 season!

Circa Theatre has been a champion of quality playwriting and performance and a leader of arts and culture in Wellington for over 40 years. We have two unique theatre spaces, Circa One and Circa Two, and in 2018 both will present a programme of powerful and captivating theatre. We bring you original New Zealand work, mesmerising multi-media performance, award-winning dance, developmental and devised work, thrilling dramas, critically acclaimed musicals, deadly stunts, wicked comedy, hilarious puppetry, our perennial family favourite end-of-year pantomime and our second WTF! Women’s Theatre Festival.

Looking back, 2017 was yet another momentous year for Circa as TACT (Theatre Artists Charitable Trust) celebrated 30 years of supporting the arts by supporting our creative artists. Another milestone was reached in May 2017 when Circa signed a historic agreement with Te Papa, recognising shared connections and goals – both cultural and physical – between the two iconic Wellington organisations and a commitment to a closer collaborative working relationship.

With a shared aim to bring even greater artistic offerings to the public, 2018 will see the development of a vibrant and dynamic cultural precinct on the waterfront space where both Circa and Te Papa are situated. With our building renovations well underway and due for completion this year, we look forward to welcoming you into a refreshed and revitalised theatre space.

Finally, a heartfelt thank you to our loyal supporters, play sponsors, practitioners, friends and patrons – all of whom make this 2018 programme possible. We are extremely proud to present and share a colourful season of plays, performances and events that we hope will entertain, challenge, move and inspire.
