“Kings of the Gym”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Circa is a quaint theatre in the waterfront area, just in front of Te Papa Museum. We enjoyed Kings of the Gym quite a lot, a spectacularly politically incorrect, but well presented, play. The theatre is a simple and small venue. Drinks, ice cream and light food available.

“Great Little Theatre”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

This has some excellent shows that are a must to see, small and intimate, stage is very close so hearing is not a problem for the older people. Great to have a Wine and maybe a snack before or after the show.

“A fun night's entertainment”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed the Xmas pantomime. It was colourful, very interactive, and well done. The cast made a huge effort to get the audience involved, particularly the children. We had great seats but i think most of theatre would offer a good view of stage.

“stands out for its uniqueness”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

An amazing building - it is quite distinctive for its history amidst a variety of very modern buildings such as the Te Papa museum next door. Has a variety of fascinating shows and seems to have a special place with Christmas events.

“Beautiful building, wonderful performances”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

This is an "old standard" establishment of Wellington and it's always been known to have cutting edge productions. The building is marvellous, location is easy (right next to Te Papa) and the performances are always outstanding. All seating is good for viewing the stage.
