Welcome to 16th Ave Theatre

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.

16th Ave Theatre’s next darkly funny show…

20 November- 5 December

Last Legs

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.
