SHAKESPEARE WOULD BE PRETTY PLEASED
Shoreside Theatre’s intent is to present genuine Shakespeare and in this, our 23rd summer Shakespeare season, it’s all the more entertaining and dramatic for that. With alternating performances in the PumpHouse Amphitheatre you have the choice of a great history play or his best comedy – or both. Shakespeare would be pretty pleased that his plays are being professionally performed on the other side of the world, by Shoreside at least and staying true to his visualizations.
HENRY V – the Hero King
Directed by Carol Dumbleton
Directed by James Bell
SEE BOTH PLAYS – TWICE THE PLEASURE – EVERYONE HAS A SEAT
As the summer evenings settle , enjoy traditional presentations of two Shakespeare plays performed outdoors in The PumpHouse Amphitheatre.
No standing – there is seating for all members of the audience.
In bad weather, performances may be moved indoors. In the unlikely event of cancellation, tickets may be transferred to another evening during the season.
23 YEARS OF REAL SHAKESPEARE PERFORMANCES
This 23rd year of Auckland Shakespeare in the Park has alternating performances of a history play and a comedy throughout the season.
Presented by Shoreside Theatre Inc., a company of professional and community actors, production crew, enthusiasts and supporters with the aspiration to stage real Shakespeare. As always, both plays feature fabulous costumes and passionate performances.
