Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand (SGCNZ) is a life skills enhancing organisation through Shakespeare. It provides educational and enjoyable events and experiences for all ages. SGCNZ interacts with Shakespeare's Gobe and provides valuable learning opportunities for students, teachers, actors, directors and Shakespeare devotees throughout the entire country.

SGCNZ was founded in 1991. By the end of our 20th year in 2014, 100 000 students had been involved in our festivals and many more in out associated activities.

Providing educational opportunities for people of all ages – primary, secondary, tertiary, emerging and professional theatre practitioners, teachers, corporate sector and lovers of Shakespeare – SGCNZ helps lift Shakespeare from the page to performance and other highly imaginative manifestations.

Developing skills of young people, including collaboration, co-operation, compromise, and at the same time, leadership, self-presentation, self- confidence, self-esteem, time management, project management and performance evaluation are just some of the key skills SGCNZ enhances.

A type of ‘cultural united nations’, SGCNZ transverses ethnic and socio-economic boundaries, by providing opportunities for all to realise their potential on stage through our festivals, its flow on activities, and the associated competitions in costume and static image design, music composition and writing. Interns from universities around the globe and local volunteers gain invaluable arts administration work experience.

SGCNZ encourages people to relish the richness of language, have fun with figures of speech, explore literature and let their imaginary forces work…!
