TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

Pop-up Globe School Matinees for Auckland winter festival:

After playing to over 600,000 people across Australasia in just three years, Auckland’s smash-hit sensation Pop-up Globe is hosting its first ever Winter Festival, now with a roof and heated auditorium.

We are excited to announce that there will also be school matinee performances of both the most famous play in the canon, Hamlet, and uproariously funny comedy, Twelfth Night.

Productions will feature stunning bespoke Jacobean costumes, a specially-designed touring set that recreates the beautiful scenic design of Pop-up Globe Auckland, and the extraordinary lively performances of Shakespeare’s masterworks by a highly-experienced cast that have won the company awards across Australasia, including eight theatre awards in Sydney last year.

ABOUT THE SHOWS!

The most famous play in the world, Hamlet

The most towering achievement in the dramatic canon, Hamlet combines all the swashbuckling action of a revenge tragedy with profound and poetic questions about the nature of life and death.

See Shakespeare’s most iconic character in his most famous play in this exciting and existential masterpiece. A cast of 14 will take you on a journey of revenge, grief, madness and catharsis culminating in a breathtaking duel in the blood-drenched finale that will leave you lost for words.

Directed by award-winning director David Lawrence, don’t miss this “theatrical triumph” (Broadway World NZ on Hamlet).

Shakespeare’s most brilliant comedy Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night is given a fresh lease of life in this new production directed for the 2019 Winter Festival by Pop-up Globe’s award-winning Artistic Director Miles Gregory.

Two twins, shipwrecked and separated, are cast ashore in a strange land where love and madness are in the very air. Each believing the other to be dead, they embark on extraordinary adventures that will lead them both to true love and an unforgettable reconciliation…
