Tis the season of Outdoor Theatre

Audience for outdoor theatre at Arlington Court

The summer is here and what better way to enjoy it than with a summer evening of entertainment with our season of outdoor theatre.

Northanger Abbey (Heartbreak Productions)

A great evening of entertainment, although the heavens opened for a little bit it certainly didn't dampen the spirits of the cast or the audience - a great time was had by all with much laughter and fun audience participation.

Wind in the Willows (Boxtree Productions)

Sunday 6 August, 5pm
Meet Mole as he says 'dan' and 'blast it!', throws down his broom and sets off on an adventure out of his hole. On his journey he meets the effervescent Ratty who shows him the wonders of picnics and messing about on the river, Badger, the wise old sage of woods and Toad of Toad Hall, whose exploits cause all manner of mischief and upheaval. When the Weasels take over Toad Hall it's up to Mole and Ratty, Badger and Toad to retake control.

With inventive staging, original songs and magical storytelling we invite audiences to enjoy this classic tale of adventure, friendship and picnics in Boxtree Production's unique and energetic way!

The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare (Illyria)

Saturday 19 August, 6pm
In the bard's shortest, funniest comedy two sets of identical twins, separated at birth, unknowingly end up in the same city, and through a series of chance meetings their lives - and sanity - begin to unravel.

This year Illyria's Shakespeare production is re-located to the town of Ephesus, Mexico, and is performed by their very own 5-piece Mariachi band, resplendent in ponchos and sombreros. Ay caramba!
