Shoreside Theatre

Auckland Shakespeare in the Park

With the 2019 season of Auckland Shakespeare in the Park at The PumpHouse there is no trivialization of the writings of the man which made his name perhaps the best-known on the planet. Shoreside Theatre’s January and February presentations of “Henry V” and  “Twelfth Night” being true to his visualizations are all the more entertaining and enthralling for that.

Henry V celebrates one of the most charismatic monarchs in British history and is a great patriotic drama. How rousing, then; “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more” and the famous St Crispin’s Day speech “We few, we happy few”.

Director: Carol Dumbleton

In Twelfth Night Shakespeare has Cupid, the god of love working overtime and uses intrigue and disguise to create sublimely farcical situations including an entangled love triangle. Many hilarious  situations of mistaken identity ensue.

Director: James Bell

The 2019 season starts with Twelfth Night on Saturday, 12th January (very appropriately) and with alternating performances of Henry V you have the choice of a gripping history play or Shakespeare’s best comedy – OR BOTH.                                                                                                                         



12th Jan – 9th Feb (playing alternate nights) @ 7.30pm

The Amphitheatre @ The PumpHouse, Killarney Park (Off Manurere Ave, Takapuna)
