It’s Shoreside Theatre’s 21st continuous season of Auckland Shakespeare in the Park and for these special celebrations the company has chosen two of Shakespeare’s popular comedies, Love’s Labour’s Lost and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The company specialises in presenting Shakespeare’s plays as true to Bard’s original text and era as possible including fabulous Elizabethan costumes.

The plays are performed outdoors during January and February in The PumpHouse Amphitheatre as the summer’s day gives way to dusk and then evening.

Running time for a Shakespeare in the Park play is usually around 2 hours plus interval. (Length of interval is dependent on the size of the audience on any given night but usually between 15-20 mins)

Shoreside Theatre is also offering a great discount if you book a season pass – for both shows.

Book a Season Pass for Both Shows or for each show separately.

Love’s Labour’s Lost
Directed by Carol Dumbleton

King Ferdinand and his three companions, Berowne, Dumaine and Longaville swear an oath that for three years they will reject the world’s pleasures, including women and commit themselves to a life of study. Some hope! Trouble soon comes in the form of The Princess of France and her three ladies in waiting.

Shakespeare delights in upholding and then unravelling an unrealistic vow and mischievously suggests that study of the opposite sex is the highest of all academic endeavours. There is laughter during the play, arguments and music.
