The Shows

The Midnight Gang Friday 29th June- Sunday 1st July

When everyone else is sweetly sleeping, they gather in the middle of the night in the name of magic, mischief, and memory making. Join Heartbreak and the gang on this crucial mission to overcome our greatest fears and uncover the magic ingredient to a fantastic friendship.

Much Ado About Nothing Saturday 7th July-Sunday 8th July

For Hero and Claudio it’s love at first sight, while Benedick and Beatrice carry on a charade of witty insults that hides their true feelings. Hearts will be won and lost and won again as war makes way for masked balls, gossip, deception, and true love.

Pride and Prejudice Thursday 19th July-Friday 20th July

Join Heartbreak, the Bennet sisters, and a host of charming young bachelors (yes, Mr Darcy will be there. No really, yes, that Mr Darcy) for an evening of comedy, romance, and more than one come-uppance, as we learn how to behave, ahem, properly.

The Railway Children Friday 18th August-Sunday 19th August

Gather around Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis on platform one as they pass the time by sharing the classic tale of The Railway Children. Living by the railway line, the children spend quite a bit of time watching the trains and making some unexpected friendships. There is the old gentleman who regularly takes the 9.15 train and helps them solve the mystery of what happened to their father, and the Russian immigrant who teaches them that compassion and understanding cross all boundaries.

Keep an eye out this summer for some Out and About Mummy reviews, as me and my family have been asked to come along to the entire summer season! We are extremely excited and can’t wait!

So don’t forget to bring your chairs, blankets, picnics, (perhaps a brolly) and be prepared to be entertained!
