Event details

On this tour of The PumpHouse Theatre you'll learn about its history from pre-European times to today.

There'll be stories of the people who have played a part in the theatre's long history – from its days as a water pumping station, through the campaign to save it from demolition in the 1960s-70s, to those who have helped shape it as a successful community theatre.

You'll be able to access all areas – backstage, onstage and front of house. Visit the outdoor amphitheatre, Coal Bunker Studio, Genevieve Becroft Auditorium, Peg Escott Greenroom, dressing room, actors' lounge, box office and theatre foyer … and you might meet a ghost or two!
