A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S SHOWCASE

Front Room Productions is proud to present A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S SHOWCASE – coming to a Leeds Park near you this July and August!

Friends, Romans, countrymen: lend us your ears,

Gather a picnic, and your favourite peers,

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

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 day, we will entertain you!

 

Already watched everything on Netflix? Need something new to try? Then join us for a joyful showcase of Shakespearean scenes and pop-songs in your local park! There’ll be plenty of room for distancing, and it’s all absolutely FREE.

 

Whether you’re a Bard buff, or it’s your first taste of Shakespeare, we promise fun for all the family in beautiful surroundings – the perfect shared experience after the long weeks of lockdown.
