About Us

Napier Theatre Company (often abbreviated as NTC) is a theatre company based in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.

Napier Theatre Company was founded by director Anthony Collier in 2020, with the vision 'to create innovative, avant-garde productions that push the boundaries of live performances'. The inaugural production of Equus opened in November 2021 after having suffered delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Equus was met with critical acclaim, and was described as 'a fabulous inauguration for Napier Theatre Company.'

In response to continued obstacles brought on by the pandemic, Napier Theatre Company developed a new online community - NTC Studio, a space where supporters of the arts can come together in an online forum and discuss everything theatre. Eliminating the challenges often faced by communities such as geography and accessibility, NTC Studio connects users from around the world in a creative space focused on education and community discussion.

Napier Theatre Company's main focus for the future is in fostering a strong community, and developing original works for the stage.
