Pop-up Globe Melbourne with Kids

Melbourne has stepped back in time to embrace live Shakespeare this spring, after the Pop-up Globe opened in the newly christened "Shakespeare's Garden" in the heart of the city.

The Pop-up Globe is a free standing custom built replica of one of the greatest theatres in history; The Globe Theatre in London.

The magnificent structure sits proud on the hill next to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl and has attracted the attention of Melbourne theatre goers young and young-at-heart for all the right reasons.

We took our 3 and 9 yr old boys along to watch "Around the Globe in 60 Minutes" last Friday, and what a delight it was for all of us.

The theatre is set up to seat audience members on different levels. There's the VIP Royal Rooms; with only 16 seats available at each show. The Middle Gallery is positioned right above all the action with comfortable backed chairs. The B, C & D reserve seats are located on different levels above the stage. The 'Groundlings' aka General Admission area is a standing only area but is positioned literally right in front of the action.

We were seated in the lower gallery with bench seats and cushions, where the children were free to walk down into the Groundlings area if they wanted to. A great spot for families we thought.

Both kids were simply in awe of the set when they first arrived. We found our seats but soon after they were down in the Groundlings exploring the stage and admiring the blue skies peeking through the open top roof.

The show began with upbeat interaction from the onset and the action didn't stop once. Whilst our 3yo didn't quite understand all of the story, he sat for the entire duration without saying a word! At the end I asked him which part of the show he enjoyed the most, to which beamed and said "The Queen". Our 9yo giggled so much, he absolutely loved it. We all did.

I wondered if taking children to see a Shakespeare play would be a mistake but I was wrong to doubt it.

Although "Around the Globe in 60 Minutes" is not the Shakespeare you'd get from the other performances at the Pop-up Globe such as "As You Like It", "Much Ado About Nothing", "Othello" and "Henry V", this particular performance turned out to be a great choice for our children.

We loved it so much, we looked into booking in for another show. To our surprise we found most shows had sold out! However, yesterday the Pop-up Globe announced an extended season due to popular demand. Tickets are now on sale for shows through to December. Hooray!

General admission tickets are only $20, so what are you waiting for? Book your tickets to the Pop-up Globe now and don't leave the kids at home!
