Saturday 5 August 2:30pm
Saturday 5 August 7:30pm
Sunday 6 August 7:30pm
Our joyful, highly visual and accessible version perfectly illustrates this tale of partying, identity, cross-dressing and the search for true love! Set in the roaring 1920s the stage and costumes against the stunning garden backdrop will be like no theatrical performance you've experienced before.
This chaotic comedy includes shipwrecked twins, a woman dressing as a man, a love triangle, partying and silly trickery is perfect for the whole family. Featuring an original score accompanying Shakespeare's lyrics (sung by our talented cast) and some lively dance routines, there really is something for everyone (Shakespeare fan or not!)
Audiences have been very positive about the first few performances:
