The Historic Pumphouse Theatre Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

From Standing Room Only, 1:48 pm on 23 April 2017

After surviving near demolition back in the 1970s, the North Shore's Pumphouse Theatre is about to celebrate its 40th anniversary. The building's changed a lot - there's heating and dressing rooms for the cast and comfortable seats for the audience. The brick building dates back to 1905 and was originally a water pumping station for the North Shore's early settlers. In 1983 it was listed as a Category II Historic Building. Returning to the stage are a couple who performed in the first Pumphouse Theatre production. Lynn Freeman chats with Max and Sue Golding who have both taken many bows on that stage over the decades.
