Current Production

Blithe Spirit
by Noel Coward
Directed by Jan Saussey
Season 14th February - 7th March 2015

What better way to research for a new book about a homicidal medium, than to invite eccentric psychic Madame Arcati to your home, and have a jolly good seance. But writer Charles Condomine is not prepared for the surprising and spirited consequences. 
Take one husband, two feuding wives, and a sprinkling of mischief and things get thoroughly out of hand. More Details Here

The play was first seen in the West End in 1941, creating a new long-run record for non-musical British plays of 1,997 performances. It also did well on Broadway later that year, running for 657 performances. Coward adapted the play for film in 1945, starring Rex Harrison, and directed a musical adaptation, High Spirits, on Broadway in 1964. It was also adapted for television in the 1950s and 1960s and for radio. The play enjoyed several West End and Broadway revivals in the 1970s and 1980s and was revived again in London in 2004, 2011 and 2014. It returned to Broadway in February 2009.
A great play that ought not be missed.

Welcome to Dolphin Theatre
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.
