“If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.”

The Pop-up Globe Theatre Company present Shakespeare’s finest comedy, Twelfth Night, at Pop-up Globe Auckland.

A young girl and her identical twin brother are shipwrecked on a strange shore. Separated, and believing the other dead, they are transformed by their adventures in a land where intoxicating love is in the very air. Set in 1616, the year of Shakespeare’s death, and performed by an authentic all-male cast in bespoke Jacobean costume, Twelfth Night is a masterclass in laugh-out-loud comedy.

Performed by a cast of professional actors brought together into a new, specially-formed ensemble repertory company and working with world experts to bring you the authentic shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.

We believe your students’ unforgettable experience at Pop-up Globe will set them up for the year ahead, unlocking new ways of learning and thinking about Shakespeare, Drama, and English Literature & Language.

That’s why Pop-up Globe is proud to present a limited series of special schools’ matinees. These performances are for schools only and will be closed to the public.

All tickets to these special matinees are priced at $10 including GST. A minimum of 10 student tickets must be purchased.

In addition Pop-up Globe will provide one teacher ticket free for every ten student tickets booked.

The $10 tickets are general admission and include seated and standing tickets.

This very special offer is a significant saving on Pop-up Globe public performance tickets which range up to $165.

Capacity is limited. School matinee places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Don’t miss out.

"Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines"

Pop-up Globe is an open air amphitheatre and in the Groundlings under the sun it can get quite hot. We recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, a water bottle and even a handheld fan. Umbrellas are not permitted inside the yard so in case of rain please bring a raincoat!

Pop-up Globe Auckland is a full-scale working temporary replica of the second Globe Theatre originally built by Shakespeare and his company in 1614, the result of groundbreaking international academic research. With a steel frame ‘skinned’ in plywood the Pop-up Globe fuses cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year-old designs and superb contemporary performances to create an immersive 360 degree experience unlike any other.

Directed by Miles Gregory (UK/NZ). Casting TBA.
