Shakespeare’s wonderful fantasy comedy has always been a firm favourite for open-air production.

As in the Bard’s day, Festival Players International will be performing with an all-male company of skilled professional actors, and invite you to share in the colour, poetry, and magical mayhem of this unique and amazing play.

A Summer treat for the whole family.

Please note this is an outdoor production so you will need to bring your own cushions and rugs to sit on.  In the event of inclement weather we will move inside the main Hall.

Trish Knight-Webb founded The Festival Players Theatre Company in 1986, directing its first production Romeo and Juliet for the Three Choirs Festival.  She directed and performed in most of the productions and was Artistic Director of the Company until 2001.

In 2002 Trish handed over the Artistic Directorship of the Company to Michael Dyer. Since 2012 Festival Players has encompassed venues, costumes and equipment of the former Theatre Set-Up (click here for the archived web site) which had been touring Shakespeare for 35 years.

The Festival Players Theatre Company is now well established as a professional company delivering the best in open-air Shakespeare.  It continues to grow in reputation internationally.  2014 saw a change to the Festival Players set up; the company now tours as an all-male rep company staging two shows featuring the same team of performers.

The Festival Players’ patron is Dame Judi Dench, and the company is committed to presenting the very best in touring theatre, providing an accessible and enjoyable evening for all types of audiences.
