Pop-up Globe’s celebration farewell Auckland season, “The Summer of Love” presented by Anthony Harper, kicks off on the 13th December.
Headlined by a brand new production of Romeo & Juliet directed by Dr Miles Gregory. Justly regarded as Shakespeare’s tragic masterpiece, Romeo and Juliet enchants audiences with a spell-binding mix of comedy, love, poetry and – ultimately – tragedy. Balancing the tragic with comedy is a Pop-up Globe specialty.
Accompanying is a revival of our most popular show ever, Miriama McDowell’s Much Ado About Nothing an invitation to a joyful and uproarious house party, combining live music, dance and spectacular costumes in a South Pacific setting!
After the overwhelming success, and popular demand for more of Pop-up Globe’s inaugral youth theatre production Two Gentlemen of Verona, from the Winter Festival, this season see’s an expansion to 4 performances of Alls Well That Ends Well.
Back for a limited run of only 6 shows Pop-up Globe will once more be collaborating with The Stage Company to bring a special version of Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy with The Children’s Midsummer Night’s Dream a 1hr spectacular with brightly coloured costumes, and hilarious characters suitable for all ages.
Closing out the season, Pop-up Globe are extraordinarily excited to be featuring the international debut of the West End smash hit Emilia, by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm. Was Emilia Bassano the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets? A poet and writer in her own right, silenced by History.
Once the season closes, the theatre will Pop-down ready to embark on its overseas adventures. There can be no extensions. Secure your seats today before the season sells out.
