From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Meteor Theatre is a black box theatre in Hamilton, New Zealand. Run since 2014 by the One Victoria Trust,[1] the theatre is located in a former soft drinks factory at the southern end of in the central city. Various configurations of the space are possible, allowing up to 650 patrons to attend performances,[2] with the main auditorium, "The Black Box", capable of seating 150.[1]

Significant refurbishment of the building took place in 2018 to bring the building up to modern day earthquake standards.[3] A funding campaign raised more than $13,000 and a donation from the Hamilton City Council of $20,000 allowed the theatre to reopen after two months of Covid-19 induced lockdown in 2020. On reopening in June 2020, some performances sold out.[4]

The 2021 season includes "Heathers – The Musical", produced by Hannah Mooney, with director Mel Martin, musical director Kirsty Skomski and choreographer Stephanie Balsom.[5]
