Community Theatres Bring New Talent

Community theatre group Shoreside Theatre attracts hundreds of talented individuals, who inspire to get involved with the Performing Arts. They are in a unique position to provide those interested with opportunities to get on stage or backstage, to simply ‘give it a go’ or to take on roles that will help further their professional career.

Known mostly for producing the Outdoor Summer Shakespeare season each year at The PumpHouse (for the last 22 years) and the Mid-winter Murder Mystery, Shoreside is excited to add to their repertoire a One Act Play Festival this Spring. This combines many of Shoreside’s growing initiatives as a Community Theatre Company – producing diverse exciting theatre for a wide audience, offering experienced and inexperienced cast and crew much valued and rare live stage experience, and utilizing some of North Shore’s best theatre venues.

The One Act Play Festival consists of:
