In the year we celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the Stamford Shakespeare Company is marking the occasion with a production of The Tempest, Shakespeare’s final play, full of magic, treachery and comedy.
The Company is also celebrating an incredible 40 years of performing at the beautiful and historic Tolethorpe Hall with a production of one of Shakespeare’s greatest works, the dark and powerful Macbeth, the first play ever staged there.
To commemorate this milestone there is a special gala night of Macbeth on 6th August. Tickets for this performance include a free programme and glass of champagne or a soft drink. There will also be pre-performance entertainment, including jugglers, jesters, fire eaters, medieval magicians and minstrels, a harpist and a falconer with birds of prey.
The third play this year is Alan Bennett’s wonderful adaptation of The Wind in the Willows, perfect fun for all the family.
The season has already opened to great acclaim and continues until the 27th August, with performances every night (excluding Sundays) at 7.45pm and matinees every Saturday at 1.30pm. Tickets priced £10 - £18 (£25 for gala night).
