The reason for the dedication to the ‘Show Must Go On’ was the full production of the seven performances, begins this coming Thursday, June 16, and the final batch of rehearsals need to be acted out to hone the entrances and exits.

Much Ado is reportedly one of the Bard’s funniest plays and much enjoyed by actors and audiences alike, even if the elements interfere.

 

Shakespeare in the Park not only celebrates the 400th anniversary of the Bard but brings the company to its own special 54th year of productions the park.

The seven performances are from 8pm on Thursday to Saturday June 16-18 and again from Thursday June June 23 to Saturday June 25 with a matinee on Sunday June 19 which begins at 3pm.

Tickets will be available at the Rockery entrance or on line on http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/event/127728, price £10 and £8.
