Outdoor Theatre: As You Like It

Join us for a wonderful summer evening of family theatre with Duke’s Theatre Company's adaptation of Shakespeare's ‘As You Like It.’

  • Booking essential

Bring your deckchairs and blankets and prepare for an entertaining and engaging outdoor theatre experience which will leave you all smiling.

What can you expect from a Duke's Theatre Company performance? The full text in all its glory; innovative production design to support the unparalleled energy of a wonderful cast; original music so that Shakespeare's songs are heard in a whole new way.

The ancient Forest of Arden serves as the backdrop for Shakespeare’s most famous and quotable comedy. When Rosalind is banished from Duke Ferdinand’s court, new identities are explored with hilarious consequences. Music, mayhem and madness thrill as we are shown that “All the world’s a stage”.

Early booking is advised for this family theatre performance.

Settle down and enjoy the beautiful Nostell surroundings from 1 hour before the performance, during which time picnics are encouraged.
