The PumpHouse: Shakespeare in a Week!

Date: January 11th, 2021 - January 15th, 2021

11 – 15 Jan, 2021


Want to try your hand at Shakespeare?

Come and be part of The PumpHouse Shakespearian Players and put together a performance with all the works… in just 5 days!


The week will consist of:

Devising a Shakespearian performance from scratch
Developing characters
Creating props and set
Performing Shakespeare outdoors


Each day will feature some Shakespeare, some prop and costume making, some drama games but most of all FUN!

Don’t miss your chance to perform under the stars just like the professionals do…

Come and be whisked away to a faraway land where all is not as it seems and where fairy mischief and a band of hammy actors get mixed up on a midsummer night… or is it just a dream?

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!
