Hāwera Memorial Theatre Trust
The Hāwera Memorial Theatre Trust was formed in 2011, spearheaded by a local stalwart of the arts, Russ Standing. The Trust assists with funding for purchasing equipment, facilities and promotion of the Arts in our District as well as throughout the Region. The Trust works in partnership with the South Taranaki District Council, who owns the facility, to assist in the provision of facilities for recreation and cultural activities and in particular to provide financial and other assistance to the venue for the benefit of the general public of South Taranaki.

Volunteering at the Theatre
If you are interested in helping with running or maintaining the Theatre, talk to us about how you can help.
During a show season, we're always on the lookout for front of House, bar duties, technical (lighting and sound), back stage, make up and costuming etc. But we also need people who are prepared to help out with working bees.
Email the Trust and let us know what skills you can bring to the table.
