Hannah Box Office Hours
Monday - Friday, noon - 2pm & 75 minutes prior to each show
Experience corruption and fickleness...
The Threepenny Opera is an opera for beggars. One of the most accessible of Brecht’s Epic Theatre, it challenges the audience to reflect on their own beliefs and behaviour towards the underprivileged. Famous for its exceptional musical score and its in-your-face realism, this is theatre with an edge. This Wellington Repertory Theatre production will donate proceeds to the Wellington Homeless Women’s Trust.
Experience a celebration of the power of music...
World’s collide with life-changing consequences in this double-bill of mini-masterpieces by Puccini - Suor Angelica & Gianni Schicchi. Featuring internationally-acclaimed opera stars Margaret Medlyn as Suor Angelica’s icy Princess and Robert Tucker in Gianni Schicchi’s devilish title role alongside students from Te Kōkī – New Zealand School of Music. Director Jon Hunter is joined by Kenneth Young conducting the NZSM orchestra.

Hannah Playhouse - an independently run theatre venue for hire
Old buildings usefulness are so often measured by economic imperatives alone and their living presence is never acknowledged. The Hannah Playhouse provides a service to the performing arts community of the whole of NZ, in that she keeps safe the spirits of past lives that have created, and indeed appreciated, within her walls. She is a gatekeeper and her scars deserve a bow. They were earnt over years of use for intended purpose. Not many buildings can say that. I honour her mantel's continued presence in Wellington. She is a real theatre that is still one of our "Cathedrals of Honour to Humanity" in all its reflective expression. She is lucky to have a group of people currently looking after her who uphold her Mana and devote themselves to her care with passion.
