Little Andromeda is an indie theatre in the heart of Christchurch’s CBD, nestled in between Craft Embassy and Amaterrace on The Terrace. There are new exciting shows from incredible artists from Christchurch and around the country almost every night.
Come make a night of it – grab dinner at one of the amazing joints surrounding, catch a show, catch two or three if you want! Most of them are short, heaps of fun, and easy to stroll into (although if you pre-book tickets you’ll avoid disappointment if it’s sold out). Then stick around afterwards for a drink and hang out!

In summary… come hang, have fun.
In summary, Little Andromeda is like a petrie dish for performing arts.
For the audience, we are here to bring you hi-qual shows with a very strong emphasis on original work from New Zealand creatives. We are also here to make sure theatre is accessible to all: our ticket price averages $15. These low ticket prices often make choosing to go to shows no-brainers.
For creatives, Little Andromeda exists to be a space to try new ideas. We programme our material, and don’t charge a theatre hire to the producer, rather taking a percentage of ticket sales and providing production support. This is to reduce risk to creatives creating original work, and means we end up with a plethora of awesome original material here. When shows really work well, we encourage artists to continue to develop and tour the show to larger theatres.
We’re right in the middle of the Terrace… Find Oxford lane (between Terrace Tavern and Amazonita), then go up the stairs behind Little Fiddle, or go up the elevator between Bangalore Polo Club and Amazonita. You can also access it from Shands Lane.
It’s about a block from the bus exchange, and if you are bringing your car then there is street parking down Hereford Street or use the Lichfield Street Carpark, it’s just a stone’s throw away!
