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.

1-Day or Half Day Workshop: Children from 5-12yrs are invited into the daily life of the Tim Bray Theatre Company. Our tutors, cast and crew guide them in a fun hands-on adventure inside the theatre itself. Both 1-Day and Half-Day students have entry to the 10.30am performance of the current show. The attendees enjoy their time at the theatre with theatre games, meeting the actors and stage crew for a Q&A about the performance they have just seen, and touring backstage with the stage manager and lighting technician who reveal the unseen work that makes a show successful. A craft activity and further drama exercises in the afternoon complete the 1-Day option.

2-Day Workshop: Children from 7-12yrs will attend the 10.30am show of the current Tim Bray Theatre Company show, take a backstage and lighting box tour of the theatre, meet the cast and crew….and be inspired to create their own performance.  Over a fun, action-packed 2 days, our experienced Youth Theatre tutors will encourage creativity, confidence and team work,  guiding students in the development of story, script, simple props and costumes to present to parents and Caregivers at 4.30pm on Day 2.

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.

And if you and other family members would like to purchase tickets to the same 10.30am performance of the show as the Break a Leg! students, please contact The PumpHouse Theatre Box Office 09-489-8360.
