The Whitestone Contracting Auditorium

The Whitestone Contracting Auditorium is an Edwardian proscenium arch theatre that seats 548. Complete with ornate plasterwork and gilding, it was fully refurbished in 2009 to recreate the grandeur of the 1907 Opera House.

The Auditorium is an incredible backdrop to hold an exclusive banquet or function on stage. It is also the perfect venue for large events and presentations or for plenary sessions.

Audience comfort is paramount and the generously spaced seating, excellent sightlines, wheelchair accessibility to both the stalls and dress circle, and airconditioning make any performance an enjoyable experience.

The Whitestone Contracting Auditorium can be hired in a number of configurations ranging from apron stage and stalls only through to full stage applications.

The Oamaru Opera House is an intimate & thoroughly unique New Zealand venue, community owned, bringing you the latest in entertainment from around the globe.
