The PumpHouse: 2024 Season Finale of Romeo & Juliet

Date: April 23rd, 2024

Where: The PumpHouse

Come join The Barden Party for their finale show of the 2023/24 season, an after-party to acknowledge their achievements this year (Adelaide Fringe Winner: Best Theatre/Physical Theatre: Week 1), connect with the NZ performing arts community and celebrate Shakespeare himself on his birthday!

Award-winning theatre company The Barden Party is bringing their usual fun-loving spin to Romeo & Juliet, and filling Shakespeare’s most famous play with their hilarious, heartfelt antics. Reimagined as a modern-bohemian romance set to Kiwi and Australian music you know and love, and that you’ve never heard before… You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll dance the night away.

This show is also a fundraiser for their ongoing operational costs and for their ambition to take this show to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2025 and to connect with other directors, producers, actors or sponsors who may be interested in working with The Barden Party in the future. All are welcome. The bar will be open post-show and The Barden Party will be providing a cheeky cake for Shakespeare’s Birthday Party.

Post-show, other performers are welcome to hop onstage to perform a monologue or talk about their work in honour of Shakespeare’s Birthday, and we can all celebrate together.
