Hagley Theatre Company is a self contained, independent training and performance programme attached to Hagley College in Christchurch, New Zealand. In 2008 the Company celebrated 20 years of providing expert, hands-on tuition and contemporary performance experiences to young people from all over the country.
We offer students practical and theoretical study in a wide range of subjects through classes, practical workshop and a number of performance opportunities throughout the year. The course of study is one or two years in length and has been designed for those looking at further professional study and a career in the performing arts.
We have a reputation for providing excellent training and have achieved remarkable success with placing students into studies with Toi Whakaari:NZ Drama School and UNITEC School of Performing Arts. Over the course of our 22-year history over 60 students have gone on to further professional study with many more securing ongoing employment in theatre, radio, television and teaching.
