About Shoreside Theatre

Shoreside Theatre was established in 1976 beginning as two separate entities: Milford Playhouse Incorporated and Milford Little Theatre making us one of the longest running community theatre groups on the North Shore.

Our mission is to encourage and stimulate education, training and acquisition of skills in stagecraft and related arts and activities through community theatre productions.

We pride ourselves on being a welcoming and friendly organisation willing to embrace anyone who wants to get involved.  We love to provide opportunities for those interested in acting or theatre to explore and develop their skills.

Many well-known performers got their first taste of the stage in a Shoreside Theatre production.

We produce an average of three shows each year including the popular “Shakespeare in the Park” season at The PumpHouse in Takapuna every summer.  Throughout the year we produce drama and comedy at various theatres around the North Shore including The PumpHouse, The Rose Centre and TheatreWorks.

As well as acting our members have the opportunity to get involved with set building, costume making, sound and lighting and directing.
