Shoreside Theatre presents Auckland Shakespeare in the Park- Henry V and Twelfth Night

HENRY V - heroic patriot or self promotional warmonger?
12 Jan 2019 to 12 Feb 2019

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.

Killarney Park (Off Manurere Ave) Takapuna
National, Auckland


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”.

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.

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.

Buy tickets by Friday, 21 December, and you can get great Earlybird Discounts. Why not give your family and friends a different Christmas gift that will transport them to the magical world of theatre?   It’s easy. Recipients can decide which nights they wish to attend and are able to make changes up to 24 hours before a performance.
