Join hundreds of thousands of people around the world celebrating live theatre in Music Theatre International’s All Together Now! being performed across the same weekend in more than 40 different countries and territories.
The Waihi concert features 15 songs from famous shows such as Mamma Mia!, My Fair Lady, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Les Miserables & Matilda. As well as enjoying fabulous high-energy performances, you’ll be supporting Waihi Drama’s efforts to improve disabled facilities at ‘The Theatre’in Boyd Rd.
After a couple of years under Waihi Drama’s wing, Waihi’s Youth Theatre is ready to leave the nest. They will be a theatrical group in their own right, employing tutors to deliver engaging classes to Waihi’s budding stars.

The success of shows such as The Twits & Fantastic Mr Fox have shown just what you can achieve with a couple of talented tutors and a host of enthusiastic young performers.
Thanks to the support of Hauraki District Council’s Creative Communities Scheme, Youth Theatre is offering a two-term performance class next year. It will culminate in performances of Roald Dahl’s beloved family classic James and The Giant Peach.
