This stunning Gala evening will commence with a champagne reception under the twilight sky on the world-famous Globe stage.
The Gala is the culmination of fundraising to complete the new indoor Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. This jewel of a theatre, illuminated by candlelight will be a unique addition to the London cultural scene. Excitingly the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse will also be home to the Globe Young Players.
Boy actors were always a feature of theatre companies in Renaissance London. In a re-awakening of this tradition, and following a nationwide search, we have created a company of young people – both boys and girls - who will soon begin rehearsals.
This company of young teenagers will bring a new energy to the unique spirit of the Globe productions and help us discover more about the rich variety of drama.
Gala guests will be bewitched with amazing performances, exquisite catering and behind the scenes insight into what makes the Globe so special.
An auction brimming with incredible prizes is available. The lots are now available to view here.
'As the sun doth move’, so shall we: to the magical Underglobe for an evening of merriment and theatrical surprises; our ‘feast shall not fail’.
