Auckland’s leading theatre for children

“He had so much fun watching the show and had the best debrief session with me on Monday after the theatre workshop talking through all his discoveries and insights into the show. It is special to be able to share that”. Erica, July 2018 

Is your child a budding actor, director, stage manager, or theatre technician?

Let them experience the world of professional theatre with Auckland’s leading theatre for children.

Children are invited into the daily life of the Tim Bray Theatre Company. Our tutors, cast and crew guide them in a hands-on adventure inside the theatre itself, including a ticket to the 10.30am performance of the current show. The attendees of both the Half and Full Day workshops have fun learning basic stagecraft through theatre games, quizzing actors and stage crew about the performance they have just seen, learning about the role of lighting and sound, and touring backstage with the stage manager who reveals the unseen work that makes a show successful.

Those children staying on for the Full Day move to a rehearsal room to work on a related craft activity and continue performance skills work with the Tim Bray Youth Theatre tutors, creating stories and performing for each other. Morning and afternoon venues have wheelchair access.

All children receive a signed poster of the show and are sent a photo of the children with the cast as mementoes.

We love that children often join us on more than one day – our drama activities change within the daily format, and they love watching the show a second time, armed with their new backstage knowledge.

And if you and other family members would like to purchase tickets to the same performance of the show as the Break a Leg! students, please contact The PumpHouse Theatre Box Office 09-489-8360.
