"The course of true love did never run smooth"
- William Shakespeare
This year we host not one, but two Summer Shakespeare in the Walled Garden performances. The first will be a collaboration between our younger youth theatre groups The ProActives (aged 11-14), The Propellers (aged 8-11), with an adorable appearance from ProActivate (aged 6-8years) as they take on the magic and mayhem of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Set in Athens in the 1910s our young ensemble cast will sing, dance and enchant you with their performance of Shakespeare's most beguiling and popular comedies, centered around four young lovers, who, one summer's eve, become caught up in the mischief and the spells cast by the faeries and sprites dwelling in anearby forest.
With an impressive outdoor set, hand-crafted masks and direction by Nick Ash and costumes by Sam Pine, this production will provide the perfect backdrop to an enjoyable afternoon picnic-ing in the Walled Garden.
Rehearsals are well underway with the youth theatre groups putting in extra hours already! The cast is so excited about performing the Bard's classic in the glorious surroundings of the Walled Garden, with plently of ornamental foliage and whimsical flowers for those mischevious faeries to hide amongst!
