Pop-up Globe NZ Tour School Matinees


Pop-up Globe School Matinees for the tour:

After playing to over 600,000 people across Australasia in just three years, Auckland’s smash-hit sensation Pop-up Globe hits the road in New Zealand for the first time, taking their critically-acclaimed productions of Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Measure for Measure to theatres around the nation.

We are excited to announce that there will also be school matinee performances of the most famous play in the canon, Hamlet.

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.

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).
