A friend and I witnessed a mesmerizing Ballet show performed by the NZ Royal Ballet Group. We purchased tickets at $35, which was the cheapest available and sat one floor above the stage at the very back far end. Although the seating was quite distant from the stage, we were able to view the stage and the actors performance quite... More

Our conference black tie dinner was held at the st james on the stage. Approximately 150 of us sitting around 10 to a table. Being seated in this ionic theatre was awe inspiring thinking about the history and the many, many historical stories if the walls and seats could speak. The dinner was a set menu and an army of...

We saw a wonderful show in this beautiful theatre. However by the time the show finished mine and my husband's backs were aching very badly. The seats are not comfortable. Shame too that the Theatre does not have a booklet with forthcoming shows in. Also the staff allowed a lady in front of me to record the whole show on... More

This old theatre is very grand. Its a great venue for shows. We have recently seen singing in the rain here and it was a wonderful show. The theatre is central to wellingtons night life with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. The bus stops immediately outside.

The St James is a beautiful theatre. I've seen many shows there, from Sleeping Beauty On Ice, to illusionists, to comedy shows. Staff are always very helpful and the atmosphere is great :)
