Rainbow Theatre Shakespeare 2018!

THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA

 

The idea behind Rainbow Shakespeare is to provide high-quality, accessible professional productions that all the family could enjoy, and we are rapidly building a reputation for producing high quality theatre for family audiences.

Shakespeare done properly isn’t “difficult” or hard to understand. He just tells a good story – fights, murder, love … what more could any audience or an actor want! Shakespeare does not need gimmicks or weird interpretations to make the plays accessible to modern audiences.

The plays speak for themselves – given actors who understand and enjoy playing them. Rainbow actors are used to working together in an ensemble. We want to make every audience feel we are playing to them – uniquely.

No two performances are the same. That is where live-theatre can win hands down over film or television.

HISTORY OF RAINBOW SHAKESPEARE

 

A May sunny evening – Director and partner wandering along beach with dog. “What can we do for family audiences?” “How about Shakespeare on the beach?” Comedy or tragedy, done properly we can inspire young and old alike.

Great discoveries! Every time I had seen Love’s Labours Lost I had been bored rigid. But our 2009 productions was such fun to do, we wanted to convey our joy to the audience.

It is strange to repeat productions and discover a whole new set of insights and meanings. Twelfth Night brought the realisation that all the characters in the final scene think they are going mad – or that everyone else is going mad!
