You get close to the action and can see the expressions of the cast very clearly, so the cheeky grins and smirks add to the enjoyment. Good clear audio too

Had a great night out at the court theatre thanks to being given tickets as a gift. What a fun place! I will keep an eye on future performances and look forward to having another girls night out.

We went to see Blood Brothers and it was a very well done performance. The Court theatre never fails to dissappoint!

Absolutely brilliant! We'd gone for a late dinner before going to see the Scared Scriptless show which was all impromptu. The comedians were quick off the spot and hilarious from word go. We're definitely going back

This little theatre (was in the old University Complex) but is now is in temporary location, is an excellent place to see world and NZ dramas, produced and acted by local talents.

Every Friday and Saturday night they have these scared scriptless shows which are awesome! THey are impromptu comedy shows. Go to Cargo bar for a drink first, then catch a show and then hit the clubs. It is always a good night.

What an amazing staging of a well-known & loved play. Yes, therewere some issues with accents - or rather stress & intonation, but Shakespearean English is not always easy to understand. The night we went a large group of school children loved the show, esp the antics of Puck. Well done Court Theatre and shame on those who walked out.

Left at half time as we all agreed, although the performance was passionate and professional, we struggled to understand the American/Asian accents of the performers who held the Central Roles. We are major sponsors of the court and applaud their initiative in experimenting with this show,... More

Our family recently attended Midsummer Nights Dream at the Court. This season was a little different in that it included a number of Chinese actors as part of an exchange programme. We are regular attendees but a recent press review expressed some disappointment so we were not quite sure what to expect. Sure there were a few times that is... More
