Toi Whakaari presents a wide variety of shows throughout the year, from classical theatre to brand new devised work, spectacular showcases to original New Zealand film – all tutored by the best in the business. Our courses are strongly practical and we place the most emphasis on good process, to help students realise their full potential. You will see students displaying this in all aspects of our productions, from lighting to costume, set design to voice work, as well as the acting on stage.
