We were lucky that our visit to Christchurch with two small kids coincided with the school holidays, so we were able to catch the school holiday show at the new Court Theatre building in Addington. It was BRILLIANT! Actors were fabulous, production beautifully staged with minimal but just right props, and wonderful combination of physical humour, mime and music. And the tickets were ridiculously cheap. Dear Court Theatre, please feel free to take a show on the road to Melbourne anytime!

The place is comfortable for watching a show but lack of toilet. Hot choc was terrible but mostly all shows are great with an affordable ticket price.

This is a real highlight amongst a city that has a long way to go with rebuilding.

From the outside, you'd be forgiven for thinking that you might be in for a cold and noisy performance - an old grain silo next to a train line isn't your typical theatre location.

Once you walk through the front doors however, you are presented with a modern and appealing foyer that provides lots of comfortable spots to wait, along with some very friendly staff and volunteers behind the bar and at the cafe.

The interior of the theatre is also very pleasing and the seating is comfortable and provides a good view for the audience.

Highly recommend as a venue to check out, irrespective of which performance is occurring.
