New WRT Season Includes Royal Hunt of The Sun
Wellington Repertory Theatre is pleased to announce an exciting line-up of four plays covering a wide range of genres - including comedy, drama, and musicals - that promise to entertain, enlighten, and amuse. Our 2019 season will feature Service Please! written by New Zealand playwright Cameron Lines.
“The objective behind our ambitious 2019 season is to expand our offering to a broader range of Wellingtonians. It’s the first time in over a decade that we’ve produced four shows, and the first time we will be performing at the Hannah Playhouse,” says Oliver Mander, Wellington Repertory’s President. “2019 marks a year of change for us - new venues, more shows, and a new website are the first steps in preparing Wellington Repertory for its next century of entertainment.”

Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht, Jun 22 – 29
Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer and Service Please! by Cameron Lines, Jul 31 - Aug 10
