March’s Must Sees

News from The PumpHouse from James Bell

From suave piano recitals to riotous outdoor comedy, we are loving our must-see performances at The PumpHouse Theatre this March.

International concert pianist Roman Rudnytsky returns to The PumpHouse with a captivating new recital; he’s even leading a masterclass the next day for eight lucky secondary school piano students, so get in there quick! Thanks to generous funding from Auckland Council’s Creative Communities Scheme this Masterclass is a free event for participating students, an absolute gem of an opportunity for our young budding performers. 

We also want to make the most of the good weather, and what better way than with a comedy in our outdoor amphitheatre. Hilarious English cricket comedy “Outside Edge” by Richard Harris won ‘Best Situation Comedy’ and has had a fabulous West End run. Don’t miss this hilarious summer show from Shoreside Theatre – they’re trying something a little different in the Amphitheatre after a successful Shakespeare season.

How about some circus, burlesque, horror and everything in-between? We’ve got The Twilight Zone, a stellar cast of up-and-coming circus performers, alongside seasoned award-winning professionals. If you’re looking for more family-orientated fun, don’t miss Andre Vegas at work; his Family Magic & Illusion show is well-known nationally with numerous TV appearances and tours. And finally, the fantastic Carnaval de la Noche presents ‘Your Move’ – a pole dance & cirque theatre showcase inspired by the games of our lives. So we’ve got magic, circus and burlesque sorted for the month too. 

The Lakeside Multicultural Festival is also fast approaching in March; a free event with four hours of dancing, singing and amazing colourful costumes from many ethnic groups living in Auckland. It’s their 21st Lakeside Multicultural Festival this year – and the Auckland Multicultural Society is celebrating their 40th Anniversary. Come and join us at the festival on the 18th March in The PumpHouse Amphitheatre.
