Theatre season to return to Chester

Filed under: Chester — Posted by: Deborah on June 19, 2013

Theatre fans in Chester are gearing up for a season of culture when the Grosvenor Park Open Theatre season begins in the city next month.

The event, which aims to improve on its sell-out run from last year, is running an expanded eight-week season and sees Olivier Award-winning director Lucy Pitman-Wallace directing Cyrano de Bergerac and a troupe of highly acclaimed actors perform Othello. Visitors will also have the chance to enjoy the perfect picnic entertainment of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The event has a wide appeal, and with its modest auditorium allowing for truly personal performances against the backdrop of the great outdoors, it provides a unique experience for all who attend. Free tickets are available for children under 12, making it even more affordable for families and the relaxed atmosphere provides an ideal forum to entice youngsters into theatre.

The theatre season draws fans from all over the UK and there are many hotels near Chester for attendees who don’t want to face the drive home after the show. For those spending a weekend in the area, a spectacular dusk production of some classic drama is a truly memorable way to enjoy an evening.

The season runs from 5th July to 25th August and has something for both the veteran theatre goers and those just looking for a relaxed and informal way to spend an evening under the stars with a picnic hamper. Tickets are available now from the event’s official website.
