Now, with the reten- tion of most of the orig- inal old bricks, it has emerged looking as beau- tiful as when it was first built over 100 years ago. PumpHouse staff are relieved the old chimney, which prior to the works appeared to be leaning in a Tower of Pisa manner towards the adminis- tration office, is now unlikely to fall on their heads if an earthquake strikes. They d like to congrat- ulate one of their regular theatre producers, North Shore Music Theatre on the success of the recent season of Footloose that had PumpHouse audie- nces singing along with all the hit songs from the original 1984 movie. NSMT s next big show is Miss Saigon at the Civic, and PumpHouse staff say it s great to see a North Shore Theatre group taking their talents to town. Shakespeare at The PumpHouse Amphi- theatre: First cab off the rank on the 2001 PumpHouse calendar is Shoreside Theatre s season of Shakespeare in the Park. Performed outside in the PumpHouse Amphi- theatre, the summer season of Shakespeare is an extremely popular Takapuna event. Two plays examine the lighter side of life and love in both comedy and farce. Performed on alternate nights, the romantic As You Like It will contrast with the always-contentious The Taming of the Shrew . Both popular plays, each tells the tale of two very different leading ladies and their diver- gent stories in the mar- riage stakes. The love- struck Rosalind in As You Like It contrasts dramatically with stormy Katherine, the unfortunate Shrew who has no control of her tongue and temper. PumpHouse Gift Vouchers: The PumpHouse has some fantastic shows lined up for next year to suit audiences of all ages. For those at a loss as to what to get your loved ones this Christ- mas, The PumpHouse now has the gift of live theatre ! Gift vouchers are available in denom- inations of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. Phone 489-8360 or visit www.pump house.co.nz. Great club about to get even better! You ll go far before you find better and more compre- hensive facilities than those at the Takapuna RSA and Social Club, especially if you re a good sport! Things are on the move at this superb venue, driven by a dynamic new president with lots of energy for change. The club offers members a full TAB service, and dedicated televisions and full form and sports bet- ting guides are on display every day. If you like a flutter on the pokies, look no further. The gaming machines are all multi-game with a $500 jackpot start. For pool players there are three full-size pool tables.
