About Nelson Musical Theatre

Nelson Musical Theatre has been a part of the Nelson Theatre Scene since the late 1800s. One of the oldest Musical Theatre Societies in New Zealand, we have been creating amazing shows for over 120 years. While we produce high quality shows ourselves, we are also happy to work with anyone in the community that would like to produce, write or direct a musical.

We are the only theatre society in Nelson who are lucky enough to have their own performance space, the Red Door Theatre located near Founders Park. You can hire it by emailing us at hallhire@nmt.org.nz.

Nelson Musical Theatre also has an extensive wardrobe, with all costumes available to hire. Open 10:30am - 2pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 10:30am - 1pm Saturdays. Alternatively you can email us at info@nmt.org.nz.

Nelson Musical Theatre is governed by a committee of volunteers that meet fortnightly to manage what’s going on and decide on the shows which will be performed.
