Located in the heart of the entertainment district, The St James Theatre is one of the jewels in Wellington's crown, refurbished with superb conference and function facilities.
A free backstage tour around this beautifully restored Edwardian theatre will help classes get more out of their next school production.
They will be given the opportunity to see behind the scenes of a professional theatre, hear about the theatre's history and its ghosts, and sneak a peek at the five star dressing rooms (performance schedules permitting).
To take full advantage of a visit, groups can combine the theatre tour with a trip to the Royal New Zealand Ballet studios, which are located on the third floor of the St James Theatre. A full schedule of performances and workshops is available for schools on the website or on request.
