Unitec’s annual Shakespeare Season continues to grow in profile on the New Zealand’s performing arts scene. Two of Unitec’s productions, Titus (2012) and Antony & Cleopatra (2015, pictured) were re-staged at the Pop-Up Globe Theatre in Auckland on March and April 2016. They were both box office successes and among the best attended productions during the Globe season.

Some feedback from last year’s Unitec Shakespeare Season:

“A gripping experience to say the least.  The cast made Shakespeare “Come Alive”.”
“I have seen two previous plays of this some years ago and I didn’t get it. Last night, for the first time…. I got it!”
“Not only do the cast perform well, they make their characters jump off the stage at you.”
“This show is like purchasing a sandwich and the first bite tells it all.  Everything you could have expected to be in the sandwich is in it if not more.” 

“Going from the crowd response during the whole show, says it all, laughter, clapping, responsive body gestures of anticipation and eagerness and enjoyment and it wasn’t only me.”

Cost: $5 per student / teacher (prices incl GST)
