Pop-up Globe NZ Tour School Matinee Shows: Shakespeare's Hamlet

Classroom resources Waikato, Hawke's Bay, Wellington, Tasman/Nelson, Otago

Posted: 07 June 2019
Notice reference #: 1H9uqm

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.

We are excited to announce that there will 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.

About the show!

Hamlet combines all the swashbuckling action of a revenge tragedy with profound and poetic questions about the nature of life and death.

A cast of 14 will take you on a journey of revenge, grief, madness and catharsis culminating in a breathtaking duel finale that will leave you lost for words.

School matinee tickets are limited so be in quick.

See website for booking information!
