Welcome to Shoreside Theatre

Your North Shore theatre whānau. 

We would love you to join us either as a creative or as part of our audience.

Our annual program includes summer Shakespeare in the Park, mid-winter murder mysteries by Agatha Christie and our One Act Play season.

Auditions – Shakespeare in the Park

Auckland Shakespeare in the Park returns in 2024!

Seize your chance to be part of along standing tradition and give your acting muscles a really good work out by performing outdoors.

Shoreside Theatre Inc is once again presenting a season of Shakespeare under the stars in the outdoor amphitheatre at the iconic PumpHouse Theatre, Takapuna.

One season – two plays by the Bard.

Measure for Measure directed by James Bell 

A play that explores power in all it’s forms and how it changes people – not always for the good! It is a play for our times exploring the power dynamic at its worst.

Devious plans, innocence threatened with a side order of ribald comedy thrown in.


A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by Grae Burton

A fantastical romp through love and relationships. Magic, mayhem and the meanderings of The Mechanicals – all on a midsummer night.

One of Shakespeare’s best known works.
