New WRT Season Includes 'Royal Hunt of The Sun'
Wellington Repertory Theatre is pleased to announce an exciting line-up of four plays covering a wide range of genres - including comedy, drama, and musicals - that promise to entertain, enlighten, and amuse. Our 2019 season will feature Service Please! written by New Zealand playwright Cameron Lines.

It’s the first time in over a decade that we’ve produced four shows, and the first time we will be performing at the Hannah Playhouse,” says Oliver Mander, Wellington Repertory’s President. “2019 marks a year of change for us - new venues, more shows, and a new website are the first steps in preparing Wellington Repertory for its next century of entertainment.”
