Aranui Theatre Company

Aranui Theatre Company was established by Robert Gilbert, Head of Drama and Academy Director at Christchurch’s Aranui High School.

Over the years, Aranui High School’s drama productions have become synonymous with excellence and innovation, gaining wide acclaim. Aranui productions have won multiple awards and Robert has twice won the Best Director Award at the International Theatre Festival on Norfolk Island.

Aranui Theatre Company aims to provide a career pathway for top graduate students from the Aranui Theatre Academy. Robert Gilbert directs, tutors, and mentors his actors so that your school can be assured of the very highest possible standard of production.

In the last two years, Aranui Theatre Company has travelled over 50,000 kms visiting schools throughout the country, entertaining more than 45,000 school pupils. They have twice won Best Comedy at The NZTF Canterbury District Theatre Festival, and Best Production in 2009.

We know that this year’s plays will entertain and educate as they have been carefully crafted to complement the New Zealand Arts Curriculum. We owe special thanks to {The Play Press} and Playmarket who assisted us with OPHELIA THINKS HARDER.
