About The Globe Theatre Dunedin
The Theatre in the House
The multi-award winning Globe Theatre is one of Dunedin’s foremost community theatres, begun by Patric and Rosalie Carey in 1961 when they extended the drawing room of their 1860’s London St home to create an intimate 30 seat theatre. This was later enlarged into the current 70 seat theatre. The Globe can claim many firsts, including the Australasian premiere of Samuel Becket’s Waiting for Godot, being the birthplace of the plays of James K Baxter and premiering other local playwrights.
Theatre in Dunedin has changed since 1961 and the Globe has changed with it, producing a varied annual season of modern and classic plays of all genres.
The Globe is administered by The Friends of the Globe and relies entirely on volunteer support. Anyone who is interested in being involved is welcomed – acting, directing, as stage crew and set builders, as technical operators or Front of House.
