Musikmakers is an amateur musical theatre organisation based in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Brief History

The Riverlea Theatre and Arts Centre was established in 1984 as a cooperative venture between a Musikmakers, Playbox, the Theatre Technique Trust and the Waikato Society of Potters. Musikmakers had been established well before this but it was not until the council purchased the building which had been home to the Orange Garden Cabaret on Riverlea Rd that Musikmakers found a permenant home.
