Professional theatre company Rain or Shine, hailed by ‘The Stage’ as “one of the best companies touring open air theatre” are set to delight family audiences once again this summer with their production of Shakespeare’s magical and hilarious comedy masterpiece A Midsummer Night’s Dream to coincide with the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
With well-loved characters such as Bottom and Puck, the beneficial charity, East Coast Hospice invite family audiences from 6 to 96 into the intoxicating dream world of fairy queen and king, Titania and Oberon. This fast-paced jaunt through the Bard’s best loved comedy is filled with magic and mischief, inspired by warm nights, young love and ‘An Elizabethan Carnival’ atmosphere.
The travelling production will be performing at the picturesque stately home; Ditchingham Hall in Norfolk, (NR35 2JX) where the stunning gardens will be open from 5pm for a 7.30pm performance on Friday the 24th of June 2016, in aid of local charity East Coast Hospice; whose mission is to provide specialist palliative care for the people of Waveney and Great Yarmouth by building Margaret Chadd House in Hopton.
Audiences are invited to bring along low-backed seating or rugs, and their own picnic. To top it all off there will be locally made artisanal ice creams to enjoy during the al fresco performance.
