Dream a little Midsummer Night’s Dream with ‘Shakespeare in The Park’

As part of national 450th anniversary events celebrating the birth of William Shakespeare, Shout! is looking for young Elmbridge actors to take part in ‘Shakespeare in the Park’.  The week-long theatre workshop is open for 10-16 year olds and culminates with three performances on the final day in parks across Elmbridge.

Taking inspiration from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, one of Shakespeare’s most loved plays, young people will be encouraged to release their energy, free their voices, to listen, to think and to be creative. The travelling players will present a performance on the final day exploring the connections between Shakespeare’s theatre and storytelling.

The workshop and rehearsals will take place at the Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre, Manor Road, Walton KT12 2PF,  10:00 to 16:00 every day, from Monday, 11 to Friday, 15 August.

Live performances will take place on Friday, 15 August at the following venues:

  • 11:00 at Churchfields Recreation Ground, Weybridge
  • 13:00 at The Cobham Medicine Gardens, Cobham
  • 15:00 at Riverside Gardens, Walton

The cost for the workshop is £75 for the week with a More Card and £90 without.
