Theatre in the Forest: Midsummer Night’s Dream

It’s almost that time again – Theatre in the Forest is back!

This summer get ready for romance, donkey’s ears and pure hilarity all wrapped up in Red Rose Chain’s unmistakable style for the ultimate A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Jimmy’s Farm, supported by their group of sponsors headlined by East of England Co-op and Scrutton Bland, and joined by Lay & Wheeler.

Last year they welcomed more audience members than ever before – over 10,000 people experiencing Theatre in the Forest within the farm’s beautiful woodland clearing, and this year they’re transforming the forest into Fairy Land for Shakespeare’s ultimate utterly bonkers comedy.
They’ve assembled a wildly creative and multi-talented cast, including the return of forest favourites Kirsty Thorpe (The Comedy of Errors, Wuthering Heights) and Rachael McCormick (Wuthering Heights) while others are brand new to the forest and will be making their highly-anticipated debut this summer.

Joanna Carrick’s production is the perfect entertainment for all ages, whether you’re into Shakespeare, comedy or just enjoy a bit of the great outdoors, their beloved summer spectacular truly has something for everyone! Don’t miss out on what is now the region’s largest outdoor theatre event that holds audiences “breathless” (Libby Purves) and is “Sheer bliss – the most wonderful few hours that leave you wanting more!” (Audience member)

To make your night even more magical, why not enjoy a delicious pre-theatre dinner at Jimmy’s Farm restaurant, while the cast of fairies, mechanicals and mortals warm up before the show! – Just make sure Puck doesn’t steal your pudding!

The Box Office is open now, tickets are available to purchase both online: www.theatreintheforest.com or through SEE Tickets, and over the phone on 01473 603388. Their friendly Box Office team are happy to answer any queries you may have, so feel free to give them a call.

See you in the forest!
