Experience the Goblin Market

A contemporary circus retelling following two sisters, their temptation, sacrifice and eventual salvation. The Dust Palace celebrate their 10th year with this delicious circus precariously balanced with gritty performances and candid storytelling.

Experience wonder...

Complimented by one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous scores, Alice In Wonderland tells the story of a young girl who is whisked away to a magical world of wonder.

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.
