The PumpHouse: Runaway Rudolph

Date: December 11th, 2020 - December 23rd, 2020

10:30am & 1pm daily


Rudolph has taken Santa’s Magical Sleigh to Aotearoa for a WOF when he discovers it’s a lot more fun to take the Sleigh for a joyride. But, because he didn’t listen to the rules, Rudolph crashes the sleigh in a remote area of Aotearoa and can’t get it home to the North Pole again!

Help Rudolph to collect enough Christmas cheer to fly the sleigh home and save Christmas for Aotearoa and the world.

Encore Theatre Collective is proud to present a dazzling new production of Seussical The Musical, based on the immortal works of Dr Seuss. Seussical brings to life many infamous and well-loved Dr Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird and, of course, the Cat in the Hat. These characters and stories weave together in a whimsical and wacky musical extravaganza, played out against an uplifting score, and highlighting the show’s universal messages of love and acceptance – reminding us all that “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”

Since launching in 2019, Encore Theatre Collective has made an incredible mark on the Auckland theatre scene and redefined the standard of youth theatre in New Zealand. Hot on the heels of their sold-out season of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the June season of Seussical features 120 of the country’s finest young talent, ranging in age from 9-23.

With spectacular choreography, unbelievable production design, and slick vocals, Encore Theatre Collective’s Seussical The Musical is the theatrical offering of 2021 that you will not want to miss!
