Hawkins Theatre

All year round

A purpose-built theatre situated in Papakura, for all you party animals.

The facility seats 268 people and is suitable for film screenings, dance, music and theatre performance. As well as being the home of the Hawkins Youth Theatre Company, it also hosts community and civic events, comedy shows, touring events and regular film screenings – with a particular focus on New Zealand and arthouse films.

The theatre is also a venue for Operatunity, which provides professional variety concerts in local communities throughout New Zealand to over 70,000 seniors each year. Unashamedly mainstream, famous songs from each genre which range from music theatre, rock and roll, Irish, 60s and 70s, band music, proms and classical. Upcoming events include ‘The Ultimate 70s Show’, where Operatunity’s foxy ladies and gents will transport you to the psychedelic scene of Studio 54, the glamour, the dancing, in a show filled with good vibes and great music. Boogie to the hits of the most stellar artists of the 70s – ABBA, The Bee Gees and many more!
