Rainbow Theatre Shakespeare 2018!
Don’t worry, we’re back! Get those picnics ready and come and join us at Magical Highdown Gardens once again. Please tell everyone you know, and come and join us under the stars for the best, most understandable and exciting Shakespeare ever! This year we are presenting two wonderful comedies:
TAMING OF THE SHREW – July 3rd -8th – Every evening at 7.30 pm ( gates open at 6.15pm for picnics) Matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2.00 pm
Shakespeare’s glorious, fiery love story. Impoverished Petruchio needs to marry a wealthy heiress – he doesn’t care what she’s like! Katherine’s father wants to marry her off to anyone who’ll take her and her terrible temper. When they meet, stand by for fireworks…
THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA – July 10th -15th – Every evening at 7.30 pm ( gates open at 6.15pm for picnics) Matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2.00 pm
Two best friends. One stays at home to court the lady of his dreams, the other, scoffing at love, travels abroad only to fall in love with a Duke’s daughter. However when they meet again, one friend becomes infatuated with the others lady!! Does betrayal mean the end of friendship? `Robbers, a host of colourful characters, and a ‘dog, makes this a delightful Shakespearean ‘rom-com’ for a summer’s evening.
Tickets from Worthing Theatres: 01903 206206 OR at the Gate.
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.
