Little Theatre

10 Sept 2019: Little Theatre has been issued with an Earthquake Prone Building notice. For more information, see the Hutt City Council update here.

The initial seismic report has identified no significant risk to staff and visitors, so Little Theatre will stay open. We are waiting on the results of a detailed seismic assessment in 6-8 weeks, which will help us decide what needs to be done next to protect the building and its people.

Until we receive the detailed report, we will not be taking any further bookings for the theatre.

If you have any concerns about an existing booking, please contact us at
