THE SPITFIRE GRILL
Mar 23rd – Apr 2nd
directed by Jen Goddard
This modern American musical tells a story in the town of Gilead. The town is facing plenty of change – the “Spitfire Grill” finds itself in the centre of a community that has stagnated. A longing for the past coupled with finding the ‘new’ is the backdrop of a story about finding oneself.
Jun 1st – 11th
directed by Paul Stone and Helen Cashin
Brandon wants excitement at any price. He persuades his weak-minded friend Granillo to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate, Ronald Raglan. They place the body in a wooden chest and invite some acquaintances, including the dead man’s father, to a party – the chest and its gruesome contents serving as a supper table.
written & directed by Tama Smith
WRT is proud to be supporting the development of this brand-new New Zealand play.
Bitter-sweet and locally focused, this new and exciting play by Tama Smith, Apartment explores the intersection of the lives of a cluster of characters, living in the close quarters of an apartment block, as their world is pitched into the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown.
Nov 23rd – Dec 3rd

Not the show for your own ‘little monsters’, even if most of the characters are based on Sesame Street!
This delightful parody, packed with mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness, that dares to ask the question “What do you do with a B.A. in English” brings the naughtiest puppets in town to the Wellington Repertory Theatre stage.
Avenue Q ingeniously combines a cast of humans with puppets who tackle the subjects of dating, internet porn, being gay and finding purpose in life.
