Enjoy an unforgettable group outing at Pop-up Globe

Preparations are underway with 500 new costumes in the making, the Shakespeare Gardens starting to bloom, and rehearsals starting soon, and we're excited for Pop-up Globe's brand new season.

It's the perfect place to go for a fun night (or afternoon!) out with friends, family or colleagues this summer.

With Sydney critics hailing its most recent season as “unmissable”, “a thrilling night of theatre”, “highly entertaining” and “a remarkable achievement in out-of-the-box theatre making”, come and see for yourself what 500,000 people have experienced since the theatre’s inception in 2016.

With group tickets starting from $44 per ticket, and an array of delicious food and beverage options available to pre-purchase, attending a Pop-up Globe performance is something you won’t soon forget!

Opening 16 November, Pop-up Globe’s brand new season presents Shakespeare’s ultimate exploration into the abuse of power with romantic comedy The Taming of the Shrew, dark comedy Richard III, controversial comedy Measure for Measure and the most famous play ever written, Hamlet.

Make the most of Pop-up Globe’s special group booking opportunities and enjoy an unforgettable group outing to see the first shows in the lineup – The Taming of the Shrew and Richard III.

Are you a romantic comedy fan? Is 10 Things I Hate About You one of your favourite movies? Then you absolutely cannot miss The Taming of the Shrew!

Easily Shakespeare’s most controversial comedy, The Taming of the Shrew challenges audiences with a hilarious and fiery power struggle between the sexes. An intelligent, outspoken, wealthy woman and a rude, misogynistic drunkard, determined to secure his fortune are misled into a hasty marriage. The power struggle begins when he sets himself the task of “taming” his headstrong bride to turn her into his view of the “perfect wife.” Open 16 November to 3 February.

If dark comedies filled with epic battles and rich with history are more to your taste, then Richard III is right up your alley.

Polarising, egotistical, unethical; one powerful individual cunningly campaigns his way to the throne, obliterating everything in his path. When the state is weak, unscrupulous politicians can become powerful leaders. In a world where no one believes that such an inappropriate candidate could ever rise to power, Richard Duke of Gloucester plays upon his own reputation and shamelessly manipulates, extorts and executes his way to the top in Richard III. Open 17 November to 3 February.

There will be two other shows opening later on in the season: Measure for Measure opens 14 February and Hamlet opens 15 February.
