Went to see Hound of the Baskervilles - absolutely fantastic. Great show with great actors. The Court Theatre is always great.

This little theatre (was in the old University Complex) but is now is in temporary location, is an excellent place to see world and NZ dramas, produced and acted by local talents.

Every Friday and Saturday night they have these scared scriptless shows which are awesome! THey are impromptu comedy shows. Go to Cargo bar for a drink first, then catch a show and then hit the clubs. It is always a good night.

What an amazing staging of a well-known & loved play. Yes, therewere some issues with accents - or rather stress & intonation, but Shakespearean English is not always easy to understand. The night we went a large group of school children loved the show, esp the antics of Puck. Well done Court Theatre and shame on those who walked out.

Took our daughters to the latest Court performance of Shakespeare's mid summer nights dream. Left at half time as we all agreed, although the performance was passionate and professional, we struggled to understand the American/Asian accents of the performers who held the Central Roles. We are major sponsors of the court and applaud their initiative in experimenting with this show, however fir us , it did not work.
Looking forward to next show.
