VISITING THE THEATRE
All performances take place at Auckland Theatre Company's new home, the ASB Waterfront Theatre in Auckland's dynamic Wynyard Quarter.
Getting there @styleClass>
The ASB Waterfront theatre is located at
138 Halsey Street
Wynyard Quarter is still growing, so please be aware that there may be road works when you are visiting the ASB Waterfront Theatre. We suggest allowing extra time to travel to the theatre. We take every step to update you about travel to the area before your schools' performance.
Schools travelling by bus
Students will disembark at the Madden Street bus drop-off area outside the ASB Waterfront Theatre. Buses MUST approach Madden Street from Beaumont Street or Daldy street and then pull into the drop-off area to unload students. Buses must not stop on Halsey street. There is no bus parking at the ASB Waterfront Theatre. The best option for buses is to park at Z Pier in Westhaven Marina or in the parking areas beside the Auckland harbour bridge.
Schools travelling by van or cars
There is no parking at the ASB Waterfront Theatre. There are a number of car parks available in and around Wynyard Quarter, however parking can be difficult during busy event days. The nearest available carparks are: Jellicoe St carpark or at the Downtown carpark on Custom St West and walk across Te Wero Bridge
If you are travelling by minivan we recommend the Fanshawe Street Car Park for vans.
For evening performances you can book a car park in the Hamer St Car Park in the Wynyard quarter. This carpark is a 5 minute walk from the ASB Waterfront Theatre and costs $8 to reserve.Click here to book a Hamer Street Car Park
School Audiences @styleClass>
We love our school matinee audiences and we encourage their enthusiastic response to our plays. Some things to remember when preparing your students to attend a performance are:
Eating and drink is a no-no during a performance
Turn all mobile phones off, they can be very distracting to our actors - no photography or filming during the show
The actors can hear the audience just as well as you can hear them, this includes your whispers, coughs and sneezes
