Pop-Up Globe Special Event Featuring Dave Dobbyn, Lucy Lawless, Shona Laing and More!

Pop-up Globe is the home of great things. Great battles, great spectacles, great love affairs, great comedy, great costumes and great ideas.

Today at the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of Shakespeare’s theatre, the second Globe, we’re delighted to reveal one more great thing.

In association with Actors Equity, we proudly announce a special one-time-only event The Actors' Benevolent Fund Afternoon Gala at 4pm on Sunday, 2 April, featuring a stellar line-up of New Zealand entertainers including Dave Dobbyn, Lucy Lawless, Shona Laing, Jennifer Ward-Lealand and many others. 

The Pop-up Globe company has gifted the venue to Actors’ Equity and all profits will go direct to the Actors Benevolent Fund – a not-for profit charity established in 2013 to provide assistance to professional performers who, due to injury, illness or disability are unable to work, either temporarily or in some cases for the rest of their lives.

The special 90-minute show, MCd by comedian Michele A'Court, will be in the format of a variety gala and feature our own royal family of entertainers. From Music and dance to poetry and comedy, this event will have something for everyone.

Confirmed artists and acts appearing during this performance are: Michele A'Court, Dave Dobbyn, Lucy Lawless, the Jubilation Choir, Shona Laing, Dynamotion, Stephen Lovatt, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, James Roque, Jesse Griffin, Tandi Wright, Fiona Samuel and The Black Quartet.

This is a one-time-only event so tickets are strictly limited and will sell-out quickly.
