Showbiz Christchurch was founded in 1938 as the Christchurch Operatic Society Inc, and since then has specialised in the staging of Musical Theatre in Christchurch. Showbiz provides education and development for the performance community, and entertains Christchurch audiences with many of the world’s top musical shows.
About Showbiz Christchurch
Showbiz Christchurch is a registered incorporated society with charitable status, an elected Board and small, efficient management/administration team. It is structured as a modern small business, managed and resourced to undertake the largest show projects as the performance rights become available. Engaging professional artistic personnel to direct and design, Showbiz consistently produces shows to the highest international standards.
Showbiz’s major shows each year provide opportunities for local performers, musicians and stage crew to engage in a passion for performing and learn from senior colleagues as their careers develop. Showbiz also provides opportunities for the community of Christchurch to experience performing arts events of world class standards. Tickets are priced to allow a wide cross-section of the community have access to and benefit from experiencing these shows.
