Pop Up Globe - New dates on sale at 11am tomorrow
New dates on sale at 11am tomorrow
Due to overwhelming demand, the Anthony Harper Auckland Season at Pop-up Globe has been extended for a second and final time.
Two additional weeks of Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night go on sale tomorrow at 11am via Eventfinda.
New dates will extend from 27 April to 8 May. This is the last chance to experience the theatre that has captured the hearts of a nation. Fans who have been trying to secure tickets for the past month are urged to act quickly as these shows will sell out.
Dr Miles Gregory, Artistic Director and Founder of Pop-up Globe, says “The response to Pop-up Globe has been astonishing. We’ve been overwhelmed by both demand for tickets and the most amazing feedback from many people who, like me, have loved their experience at Pop-up Globe.”
Since opening on February 19, Pop-up Globe shows have enjoyed critical and popular acclaim, 9 companies have presented 10 shows, over 80,000 tickets have been sold, and 20,000 school students have attended performances of Shakespeare’s masterworks performed in the space for which they were written. The majority of performances have been to packed houses. The season has already been extended once to meet demand. For weeks, ticket buyers have been scrambling to secure the last few ‘Groundling’ tickets which are the only remaining available tickets.
“Our cast delights its audiences every time they perform these shows” says Gregory.
“We’re very grateful to Auckland City, our neighbours, supporters, sponsors and partners all of whom have been instrumental in allowing Pop-up Globe to pop-up, and now stay up, so Aucklanders can enjoy more of these very special performances.”
“Most of all I’d like to thank Auckland for welcoming and embracing Pop-up Globe, the world’s first temporary working replica of the second Globe theatre. I don’t think Pop-up Globe could have popped up anywhere else in the world. This is a very special project in a very special place.”
