The Hannah Playhouse, an independently run theatre venue for hire
Primarily used for performing arts experiences, the Hannah is located on the corner of Courtenay Place and Cambridge Terrace, it sits in the centre of the Wellington entertainment district.
Managed under the auspices of the Experience Wellington, a charitable trust, the Playhouse seats 250 patrons, with one wheelchair position. Purpose built, the Hannah opened in October 1973 and it is now the home of performance experiences for all!
The distinctive design and signature roof line won a New Zealand Institute of Architects National Award in 1978 and an award for enduring architecture in 2006.
"Hannah Playhouse is an excellent choice for any show, whether it be musical theatre or in our case a choir concert. The venue staff are pro active and very experienced. The venue itself is surprisingly well equipped and versatile, and of course in an iconic part of Wellington's performing arts scene". Greg Maxted, Supertonic Choir
