This is a great venue. Perfectly demonstrates real innovation. I for one am in no hurry for it to move. Easy to get to, great parking, good bar area, good bathrooms and airy, spacious feeling theatre. Go,go, go and support our local art scene.

It is amazing what you can do with a smaller area. Saw Oliver there years ago and was gobsmacked with the professionalism of the place. Great show too.

The Court in its new Addington site is indeed a great Playhouse and an example of ingenuity to overcome earthquake effects. The seating is comfortable, intimate and acoustics are excellent. Bar facilities cope well with demand surges. Car parking is easy. This is a good professional theatre.

Sad to loose previous historic location but the Shed has a different new vibrancy. More room and great before and interval facilities. Wish we could afford to go more often - they bring stunning/ funny/ challenging plays to enjoy. The actors are amazing in their depth of skill to cover the different genres. Compfy seating, good accoustics and us Cantabs are now very into the modern shed/ container feel which keeps us moving forward. Be tempted to go - you wont be disappointed. And if you cant make anything else try a Scared Scriptless session!

Following the earthquakes the theatre has relocated to a bigger better and brighter venue called The Shed. This is a great theatre for the players and audience with better facilities. Well done the Court theatre group for relocating so quickly!!!
