The Court Theatre, Christchurch
The Court Theatre has been putting on quality productions for many many years and it should rank highly on your list of things to do when the sun goes down. The theatre is broken into two stages with Court two very small and intimate (be aware of this as you may feel a little uncomfortable with the actors right in your face - if this is your thing then court two is just the best!!).
Details of what is on the the Court can be found within most Christchurch newspapers and tourist magazines. For full details see the Court Theatre Website where what's on now and in the future can be found.
