Ever wondered what The Civic is like just a few hours before a show? For the first time, tour groups will experience a special, ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ pre-show tour before the cast of Mary Poppins take the stage!

Get exclusive access to some of this iconic landmark’s most admired spaces and soak up the atmosphere as the crew and team at Auckland Live get the building looking ‘spit spot’ before opening the doors to the public.

Definite must for theatre buffs! - Tour patron

On the one-hour tour, our knowledgeable tour guide will share the 'atmospheric' theatre’s fascinating history, from its inception and design in the 1920s, its scandalous war years, its decline during the '60s and '70s, and its triumphant restoration and status as one of Auckland’s architectural treasures.

This is an exciting opportunity to see The Civic like never before, to visit areas normally off-limits to the public, capture unique photographs, and discover all the secrets that bring this gorgeous venue to life. 

At the end of the tour, enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbles before you head into the theatre to see the show.
