Twelfth Night re-imagined for everyone aged six and over by William Shakespeare is comes to the Open Air Theatre - the perfect English summer treat for you and your children.
This madcap tale of mistaken identity is guaranteed to captivate younger audiences this summer. With music, laughs and lots to join in with, Shakespeare's original text sizzles with anticipation as confusion clears to reveal a happy ever after (except for that dastardly steward, Malvolio). Whether you're six or sixty, it's the perfect play to share with your whole family.
Following productions of The Winter's Tale, Pericles, Macbeth and The Tempest, Twelfth Night is another success for the 're-imagined...' series of Shakespeare plays for young people. The Financial Times called last year's production of The Winter's Tale: 'A fine introduction to Shakespeare and a celebration of the simple inventiveness of theatre'.
The auditorium and stage are completely uncovered. We will make every effort to complete the performance and reserve the right to stop and start the action as necessary. Performances are never cancelled or abandoned before the advertised starting time and then only in the event of very bad weather. If cancellation or abandonment is unavoidable, ticket holders will be entitled to equivalent seats for any other performance in the main repertoire (excludes one-off comedy, music and film events), subject to availability. Refunds are not given for cancellation or abandonment as a result of the weather. In any event, personal arrangements including travel, accommodation or hospitality relating to the event which have been arranged by you are at your own risk and not refundable by us.
Where tickets were purchased at a promotional rate, alternative performances will still be offered but may be restricted. Music, comedy and film events (which are one-off events and not part of the main repertoire) take place regardless of weather conditions.
