2023 MARKS OUR 40TH YEAR OF WELLINGTON SUMMER SHAKESPEARE!

Next year's production by Wellington Summer Shakespeare marks the 40th year that we have been performing The Bard’s works in Te Whanganui-a-Tara.

 

And to celebrate our 40th year we will be performing The Tempest, directed by Megan Evans.

We will be putting a call out for a production team this August and an audition call out will be coming soon!

For over 40 years Wellington Summer Shakespeare has presented performances of Shakespearean works for the general public and schools  supporting the participation and development of emerging artists and young people in the performing arts. We aim to make the performances as enjoyable and accessible as possible for diverse performers, production crew and audiences. 

Summer Shakespeare is unique in Wellington because it is the only large scale outdoor theatrical production in the region. It is not just a play but an ‘event’ that brings together town and gown, community, student, teacher, professional and amateur – all ages and ethnicities.
