Following a successful Winter festival run, and in response to demand this co-production between The Stage Company and Pop-up Globe is revived for Summer to bring the magic of Shakespeare to life for young people in a specially-commissioned one-hour-long production guaranteed to delight children aged between 5 and 12 years old, and their families.
Bring your family to enjoy the delights of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, blending song and dance with brilliant costumes and lively action to provide the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for tamariki and their whanau. There’s hot chips & barista-made coffee and tea for the parents!
Featuring a strong cast of top professional actors, arts factory dancers from Auckland Academy of Dance, costume design by Erika Farrant, Musical Direction by Paul Mclaney & Direction by Nancy Schroder bring you an interactive world. Escaping the harsh world of the Athenian court, two pairs of lovers flee to the forest. There they encounter the King and Queen of the fairies, who place spells on them, changing who they love. When the fairies also come across a group of amateur actors, and change one of them into a donkey, madness ensues.
This special production is one hour long and takes place on the main stage at the Pop-up Globe playhouse. The theatre will open twenty minutes before the show, and there is no interval.
The atmosphere is relaxed. If you have yard tickets, you can stand or sit with your family on the carpeted floor. Feel free to bring your own cushions!
Free water is available, and you can come and go during the performance if you need to.
Children (12 years and under) $10 to $40 plus booking fees
Adults $15 to $45 plus booking fees
