HTC is a rare and unique opportunity to be immersed in an environment that is full of creativity, challenges, friendship and learning. It was an unforgettable life highlight for me, and I deeply treasure my time at Hagley.

Hagley Theatre Company is an excellent gateway into the arts industry in New Zealand. It’s hands-on philosophy allowed me gain valuable skills across all the areas of theatre. Graduating over 20 years ago, I still rely on these skills everyday to help me in the world of film and Television.
