Join Us – Our Future Is You!

Next time you are at the theatre, take note as to how much effort may be required behind the scenes to present the 11 excellent performances for each show. Each cast and crew member has donated a minimum of 72 hours of staged rehearsals plus as many more hours again away from the stage in preparation for opening night. Many active members also double as stage set hands, sound and lighting technicians and front-of-house personnel. It is a big commitment and we very much value your continued patronage of our intimate theatre experience.

If you would like to join us, subscribe or update your membership details, please complete the online Membership Form below and SUBMIT it, or Download the Membership Form, complete it and send it to the address on the form.

Volunteers are the lifeblood and backbone of The Octagon Theatre.

In October 2018 the Whangarei Repertory Society Inc celebrated seventy successful years of bringing live theatre to Whangarei patrons. In July 2019, the Society celebrated the fortieth anniversary of the Octagon theatre building completion at the rear of 13 Aubrey Street at The Regent. The Society’s volunteers and committee members continue to be dedicated to ensuring the future-proofing of this valuable community theatre.

Be you an aspiring or experienced actor, a “get things done” gofer or someone who just wants to assist where you can with waiting tables or the washing up, we would love to hear from you.
