The Stage Company and Pop-up Globe present: The Children’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.

“Lord, what fools these mortals be.”

Auckland’s smash-hit sensation Pop-up Globe launches their first ever Winter Festival in their unique Shakespearean Playhouse.

This new co-production between The Stage Company and Pop-up Globe brings 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.

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.

Bring your family to enjoy Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, blending song and dance with brilliant costumes and lively action for the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for tamariki and their whanau.
