We are a community theatre based in Onehunga, Auckland, with six hundred members. As we have our own premises, we are able to put on six shows a year, each of which runs for a 3 week season.
Dolphin Theatre offers free parking and free programmes, with complimentary coffee and tea offered during the interval. We also have a licensed bar.
Dolphin Theatre began in 1962 as “The Little Dolphin Theatre”. Over the years with the help of community funding and fundraising from our members we were able to build our own theatre in Spring Street, Onehunga. The venue has a separate rehearsal hall which allows us to rehearse one show while performing another. See About Us for more history and information.
A usual performance season has about 16 performances, which includes at least one Saturday matinee and two Sunday 4pm performances. There is no performance on Mondays or Tuesdays, and on the other nights the show starts at 8pm. Please be at the theatre to collect tickets by 7:30pm. Our annual calendar incorporates a mix of comedy and drama, both to entertain our audiences and extend our actors and crew.
