Season Extended For The Pop-up Globe

Due to popular demand, the Anthony Harper Auckland season of Pop-Up Globe has been extended.

New dates are on sale for the final week of performances of Twelfth Night And Romeo And Juliet – a celebratory week that includes the 400th anniversary of the greatest playwright in history’s death on 23 April. It is also believed that he was born on or near the same date -- 52 years earlier -- so this will be an extraordinary week of celebrations at Pop-up Globe.

Tickets are available from Eventfinda but fans are urged to move quickly to avoid disappointment. This week will sell out.

“We have been absolutely thrilled by the response Pop-Up Globe has received from New Zealand audiences,” says artistic director Dr Miles Gregory.

“We couldn’t have dreamed of such a wonderful response. Over 50,000 tickets sold and the demand for more is astonishing."

Pop-Up Globe is the world’s first full-scale working replica of the second Globe Theatre, Shakespeare’s Theatre. Built in Greys Avenue in the heart of Auckland’s cultural precinct, the city has embraced it as one of the hottest tickets in town.

Groundlings
At Pop-up Globe, as in Shakespeare’s time, the area just in front of the stage was the most raucous place to be. With the actors only metres away and interacting directly with the

Groundlings, you can get up close and personal for only $15! You can even get $10 Groundling tickets on the door for every show, subject to availability.

Lords & Gentlemen’s Rooms
If you’re looking for a magical and unique experience, these are the most unusual seats in the house, book one of our Lords’ or Gentlemen’s Rooms to watch the show from your own private room overlooking the theatre and stage.

The Lords’ and Gentlemen’s Rooms at the second Globe Theatre were the private rooms reserved for the aristocrats and gentry. Here they would entertain their friends and watch the show from the most visible place in the theatre. Do exactly that at Pop-up Globe.

At-seat catering and drinks service is provided by Church Road and Collective for up to six guests.

To Eat & Drink
Shakespeare’s plays are littered with lines about food and drink. So it’s only fitting that one of New Zealand’s best-loved wineries, Church Road — itself steeped in history — is the toast of the hottest entertainment event in Auckland.

Church Road Winery has created a bespoke Wine Bar onsite at Pop-up Globe and is serving their multi-award winning, Church Road McDonald Series range of wines.

Before heading into the Pop-up Globe to see a play (or at the intermission), soak up the vibe, check out the cityscape basking in the sunset and give a toast to the winery and the playwright who

have made such fabulous contributions to our world.

Food is also available from the McDonald Series Wine Bar as is catering for the Lords and Gentlemen's rooms.

Pop-up Globe is proud to partner with Functions & Events, managers of the Church Road McDonald Series Wine Bar at Pop-up Globe, and Collective Hospitality, Pop-up Globe’s fine caterers.
