Shakespeare like you’ve never seen it before

As part of our Valentine’s Day programme, we’re performing Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet…like you’ve never seen it before.

In fair Te Papa where we lay our scene, throughout next 15-minute Shakespeare will be taking the stage. It’s a rip-roaring journey though one of the world’s most famous plays in just fifteen minutes. Will Te Papa’s performers pull it off? Come along and find out!

What’s more, we need your help. Be prepared to be pulled in for some audience interaction. You could fight a Montague, dance with a Capulet and live it up on the streets of Verona.

It’s a perfect way to spend your lunch break. Don’t like Valentine’s Day? Who cares?! We all know what happened to the star-crossed lovers in the end…

When is it happening?
