An Evening with the Bard
An Evening with the Bard, 28th and 29th October, 7.45 pm. Our first production in the studio, since its renovation, is a homage to Shakespeare, commemorating the 400th year since his death. The programme, directed by Jan Wilson, our resident Shakespeare expert, will start with a few quotes and facts about Shakespeare, and words and phrases first used by him. Then ‘The All the World’s a Stage’ speech will be followed by an extract from one of his plays illustrating each ‘age’.
The second half, after a sketch about a director and an actor, will present various scenes from a Midsummer Night’s Dream, to show the ways that the dialogue for the Fairies, the Mechanicals and the Nobility varies. There will also be three or four songs from the plays, with music specially composed by Polly Bolton.
Tickets on sale from 4th October at our Box Office mornings on Tuesdays and Saturdays 9.30 – 11.30 am. and on line – Price £10 which includes a free drink, or ice cream or coffee. Seats are unnumbered and are restricted to 50. Any seat will have a good view. Season tickets do not apply for this production.
Wheelchair users are welcome, but it would be helpful if you would let us know in advance, so that we can arrange a space for you.
