Director John Drinkwater and Company members have a wealth of knowledge and experience performing Shakespeare's great plays. Many have acted in and directed local productions and others have been part of the legendary Royal Shakespeare Company.
"With this excellent Shakespearean background, the
production is unmissable!"
Tickets will be available to purchase very soon. Continue to follow The Arches Theatre on Facebook, but why not follow ETC too for hot of the press production news? Find them at etctheatre.co.uk to see more about the team and the productions they're putting on in the near future.
Do you want to join the cast of a Midsummer's Night Dream? If anyone local is interested in auditioning for a role within the production, please get in touch with me as soon as possible. There are a few roles available and some acting experience is required - although not specifically Shakespeare.
A read-through is planned for the evening of the 10th February at Clifton Reynes. The dates you must be free are 2nd - 8th August for rehearsals and production. Rehearsals will be at The Arches Theatre, but full details are yet to be finalised.
This is a great opportunity for any local actor or actress. Not only will you be working with an excellent Director and Theatre Company, but you'll also get to perform on our beautiful outdoor stage.
Until next time ...
