Sorry - this show has SOLD OUT!

Mystical creatures and grotesque monsters - created by award-winning makeup arti­sts and costume designers - will take audience members on a journey over turbulent seas and through the massive labyrinthine Animal Quarantine Station on Matiu / Somes Island.

From the moment the audience steps onto the ferry at Queen’s Wharf they are become part of the action; and over the course of the performance will come face to face with the natural and historical wonders of the Island which are woven into the show.

From the hilarious plots of murderous drunks, to the lustful romance of young lovers and the trickery of forest spirits, Shakespeare’s wonderful story truly comes to life in the location where it is actually set: on a mystical, deserted Island!

From the award-winning adventure-theatre company that brought you Frogs Under the Waterfront and Quarantine comes a large-scale adventure that you will never forget. Last summer the tickets sold FAST, so get in quick!

Be at Queen’s Wharf at 7:20 PM.

Ferry departs at 7:30 PM.

$45 per ticket

Price includes ferry ride....

Being that this is adventure-theatre, make sure you are prepared! There is a 10-minute walk up a fairly steep hill once we arrive on Matiu-Somes Island, so make sure to wear suitable footwear and clothing. Also, the show will go ahead in almost any weather. Although the entire performance itself takes place under cover, you'll have to walk up the hill in the rain! Ponchos will be provided, but it is wise to bring your own rain gear as well.
