Welcome to 16th Ave Theatre
Tauranga Repertory Society Inc. takes the welfare of our members, committee, cast, crew, front of house staff and our audiences very seriously. As the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) panademic continue to develop, and the future remains unknown, it is with a heavy heart that the committee has made the decision to temporarily close
16th Avenue Theatre until further notice.
This means that we have no option but to postpone all public gatherings including our production of Last Legs, our Annual General Meeting, workshops, rehearsals, theatre hires, acting classes and group bookings.
Please be assured that if you have booked tickets to Last Legs, or had a group booking, you will receive a full refund. iTicket, or a member of our theatre, will be in touch to arrange these as soon as humanly possible.
We thank you in advance for your patience as it may take some time to process everyone’s refunds.

When The Wind Blows
By Raymond Briggs
Directed by David Guy
“We’ll just have to roll up our sleeves, tighten our belts, and put on our tin hats till it’s VE Day again…”
When The Wind Blows is the tender, tragic comedy about Jim and Hilda Bloggs, a retired couple who have moved to an isolated country cottage in the South East of England. They are a loving, decent, house-proud, working class couple who are very much behind the times. Jim hears on the radio that a pre-emptive strike is to be expected.
With his government leaflets as a guide, he constructs a refuge shelter for them both and gathers together emergency rations.
Jim and Hilda emerge after the bomb to find a devastated post-nuclear holocaust world. Expecting the powers-that-be to rescue them, they wait.
This tale is clever, credible, very funny but ultimately heart-breaking.
16th Avenue Theatre is committed to protecting the health and safety of patrons, cast, crew and front of house personnel and has implemented a Covid-19 response plan consistent with Ministry of Health guidelines and recommendations.
16th Ave Theatre’s next darkly funny show…
20 March – 4 April
By Roger Hall
Directed by Julie Lankshear
Last Legs is the latest entertainment from the popular playwright Roger Hall. He’s back with a (cardio)arresting comedy. There’s nothing retiring about a retirement village, and aging is not merely about Bridge and Bedpans. This is a lethally funny black comedy about sex, death and politics with an irresistible appeal to the bold of heart.
