On Saturday 3rd August we returned to Temple Newsam with 

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S SHOWCASE!  A joyful showcase of Shakespearean scenes and songs, in Front Room Productions' characteristic lively and accessible style.


Friends, Romans, countrymen: lend us your ears,

Gather a picnic, and your favourite peers,

Head down to Temple Newsam, for there’s magic in the air,

Several Shakespearean scenes we will with you share,

From Romeo and Juliet, to silly Twelfth Night,

To Much Ado and Macbeth (to give you a fright),

Play on we will, if music be the food of love,

With a Shakespearean twist on the songs you’ve heard of,

For all the world’s a stage, and to ourselves we must be true,

On this midsummer’s night, we will entertain you!

Whether you’re a Bard buff, or it’s your first taste of Shakespeare, we promise an evening of fun for all the family.  We're hoping to bring back the Showcase in Summer 2020, watch this space....
