Pop-Up Globe School Bookings

Shakespeare like its 1614! A must-see for students.

Pop-up Globe, the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, the second Globe, will soon pop-up right next door to the iconic Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

It will pop-up, be amazing and then disappear again.

Epic battles. Laugh-out-loud comedy. Dazzling special effects. Elaborate costumes. Spectacular dances. Sword fights in full suits of armour. This is Shakespeare like it’s 1614.

Part of Pop-up Globe’s mission is to share the extraordinary experience of Shakespeare’s masterworks performed in the original space of the second Globe with as many school students as possible.

Across Pop-up Globe’s first and second seasons, over 35,000 tickets were sold to school students. There are only 8,000 tickets available for students in Melbourne. It will sell out. Book now!

We can’t wait to share the magic with Victoria’s students and welcome you into our theatre.

This isn’t dusty Shakespeare. This is now. Alive. Like a party.
