Who We Are
The Foxton Little Theatre is a not-for profit organisation that produces live theatre for Foxton and the surrounding communities. As a community based theatre organisation, we produce three to four productions a season, where all members of the public are encouraged to participate and audition. As a non-for profit organisation, we rely greatly on the support of our private and corporate membership to assist with all areas of the production.
Foxton and the Foxton Little Theatre History
The Foxton Little Theatre is the oldest building still in use in Foxton. It was built in 1867 by George Nye as the Presbyterian Church. The first minister was Rev. James Duncan who had originally worked as a missionary to the Maori at Te Marie and Te Awahou. In 1861 he was inducted as minister to the European settlers and remained as Presbyterian minister until 1897.
In 1970, the Union of the Methodist and Presbyterian congregations meant the church was no longer needed and was eventually sold to the Little Theatre.

Foxton Little Theatre’s much anticipated production Home Land by Gary Henderson run Friday and Saturday nights from the 9th August to the 24th August 2019. This is a stunning NZ drama, set on an Otago farm. It is a play about home, family and the choices that must be made.
Foxton Little Theatre proudly supports up and coming Ryan Burnell in his debut, solo directorial role. Ryan had the lead male lead in our last production “Butterflies are Free” and has appeared in other shows for Levin Little Theatre and Abbey Musical Theatre. He brings both passion and vision for theatre and it is a wonderful opportunity to support youth in these roles.
