I love it! We come here at least 3x a year for night shows and every holidays for the children's theatre. Absolutely brilliant! Love the 'Shed'!

The Court has settled well into it's new building. We have been there for plays and Scared Scriptless, and had a great night out!

This would have to be one of the best little theatres to go to. The new location is bigger than the previous. No problems with parking and great seats throughout. The actors are always of the highest standard. Just love to catch up when ever we can with a show. Can thoroughly recommend this to all.

Saw 'The Mikado' - great show, excellent acting with a lot of local flavour. Idn't want the show to stop. For sure will go again

We were enthralled by "Mikado". Well done Court Theatre for another brilliant production. The talent you bring to our city is invaluable. We will be back.

This is a great production (as are all the Court Theatre productions). The cast is high energy and pitch perfect. The updates to the script bring our current issue in Christchurch out for well-needed lampooning. A great night out, I think we will be buying a season pass for 2014.

Had a fantastic night at the Court seeing The Mikado. It was a bit hard to find at this relatively new location but well worth the trip and parking is quite good. If the performances are quality people will come.

This theatre has been set up in an old warehouse (a former grain store, I think) as it needed to be established in premises outside the CBD as a consequence of the earthquake Located in Addington it is not far outside the city centre and close by there are a number of cafes, several of which were also set up...

This is the first dud that I can remember the Court Theatre putting on. Which is a pity, because the Court sets very high standards, and have had some fantastic plays in the past. I am not sure how this one got though, but i am sure that the Court will be more careful with their selections in future. I... More
