Kia Ora and welcome to Circa Theatre’s 2019 season!

It’s been over forty years since a fiery group of young theatre makers unleashed Circa’s first annual season on the Wellington audience and now we’re thrilled to present our 2019 season to you.

As always we’re striving to bring you the best of New Zealand and the world, right here on Wellington’s glorious waterfront. This year we welcome back old friends Kathy, Shane and Giles as they take on the sharpest contemporary writing from the UK, Germany and New Zealand.

We’ll present a great classic of the 20th Century, a new production of Waiting for Godot directed by Ross, and what’s sure to be a modern NZ classic – Sam Brooks’ searing political drama, Burn Her.

This year Sue directs the NZ premiere of Lucy Kirkwood’s towering masterpiece The Children coming hot on the heels of Lyndee-Jane’s hilarious adaptation of Rants in the Dark.

We’ve got Sondheim, Long Cloud and the return of Rollicking Entertainment, our favourite Christchurch carnies. We’re also presenting the Circa debut of The Pink Hammer by our dear friend Michele, who was one of Circa’s most popular performers.

Also, in the middle of the year we’ve got a great surprise. It’s so top secret we can’t tell you yet, but it’s a partnership with another Wellington institution and some of the country’s greatest theatrical talent – it will be Circa like you’ve never seen it before.

To those of you who have been with us over the last forty-two years, thank you, we’ve loved having you along for the ride.

To those of you joining us for the first time, nau mai, haere mai, welcome to Circa Theatre.

Lean in, we’re going to blow your minds.
