About Us

ENCOUNTER the extraordinary and the eclectic.

FIND a home for creative thinking, risk-taking and mould-breaking.

CONNECT with artists and audiences, with Auckland’s leading arts organisations and festivals, as well as the theatrical firebrands of the future.

LOOK to Q as a home- a home for every artist in Auckland and beyond. Our doors are open to theatre, music, dance, comedy, film, visual art and everything in between.

DISCOVER creative collisions, where no two nights are the same.

MOVE between our heritage building, our purpose built auditorium, our underground rehearsal room. Flexible spaces that inspire events, experiences and happenings that couldn't exist anywhere else.

MEET up with friends, visitors, artists from around the globe or around the corner and hang out in our café, restaurant and bar - our lounge is your lounge.

Q is more than a custom-built venue. With COLLABORATION and PARTNERSHIP as its heartbeat, Q is an intersection of people, ideas and art-forms.

HERE and NOW at Q Theatre. 305 Queen Street.
