THEATRE WITH HEART, SOUL, AND HUMOUR
Hobson Street Theatre Company is a theatre company created in partnership with the Auckland City Mission, with an aim to tell stories that are full of wairua and whakakata.
With all our work devised by company members, our rōpū has banned “sob stories” but instead explores ideas and stories of interest to them - from racism to friendship to haunted op shops.
Starting in 2010, HSTC has regularly presented seasons of work, in site-specific venues and professional theatres, and has also toured shows to Wellington and Dunedin.
We’re proud award winners of Best Directed Chaos at the 2018 Wellington Fringe Festival, and Community Impact Award at the 2019 Auckland Fringe. We were stoked to be the inaugural recipient of the Arts Access Creative New Zealand Community Arts Award at the 2019 Te Putanga Toi Arts Access Awards.
“...connects with its audience wholeheartedly and its insights are profound”
“We feel so privileged and happy that we could host you here with your beautiful, moving show and hope that you can continue all the amazing work you do and bring back work to us in the future.”
