Canterbury Children’s Theatre

Canterbury Children’s Theatre (CCT) has a proud 70 year history of producing quality theatre for the children of Canterbury and is indeed the first company of its kind in New Zealand.

Following the ideals of our founder, Neta Neale OBE, we have consistently entertained and enchanted generations of Cantabrians. Live theatre offers a unique opportunity for children of all ages to be involved in an exciting and imaginative experience. This can be the start of a life long appreciation of the arts.

All shows are performed by adult volunteers who give their time and effort freely. CCT is in the unique position of utilising the wonderful historic Malthouse building by the Heathcote river on Colombo Street. Step inside the doors and enter our world of make believe. It is here that we stage our very popular Cushion Theatre productions.
