About ASB Waterfront Theatre

When you walk through the doors of ASB Waterfront Theatre, you are promised a warm welcome.

Located in the heart of Wynyard Quarter’s new innovation precinct, ASB Waterfront Theatre is a thriving hub of arts and culture and the home of Auckland Theatre Company. Built for the people of Auckland and beyond the theatre showcases the very best of Aotearoa’s theatre, dance and film.

After seven years of fundraising, in 2016 Auckland Theatre Company opened the doors of ASB Waterfront Theatre with Billy Elliot the Musical. The complex features a 675-seat state-of-the art-theatre, café, bar and hosting gallery. Auckland Theatre Company’s season plays for up to 24 weeks of the year; this is complimented with the very best of both national and international dance, film and theatre.

Open during the day, ASB Waterfront Theatre is a great place to hang out, grab a coffee and soak up the sunshine while you watch the world go by. In the evenings, Halsey St Kitchen transforms into a vibrant bar, the perfect place to share a pre-show snack with friends in the sumptuous surroundings of this Greenstar-rated theatre designed by acclaimed architect Gordon Moller.

Nau mai, haere mai. Everyone is welcome.
