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,
Over Summer 2020 we've heard 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.
First performed at Temple Newsam on an evening in August 2019 we will be touring our Shakespeare Showcase to parks and events across Leeds in Summer 2020 - check back here soon for further updates!
