An outdoor production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest is to be staged at Thornham Village Hall grounds on Wednesday, August 17.
This one-off performance will be the main event in the “Festival Three by the Sea” programme during August by Hunstanton & District Festival of Arts
Here you will be able to gather round the Heartbreak production’s stone circle to meet druids, bards and revellers for a mystical rendition of Shakespeare’s final play.
Suitable for all ages, the actors will use a combination of mask, dance and song to transport you to Prospero’s magic island. This is a professional touring theatre company so there is just one show before they move on to their next venue. Previous productions in this area have included Jane Eyre and Dracula.
As it is an outdoor performance, bring warm clothing, low back seating and a picnic! Refreshments will also be available in the hall; the show starts at 7.30 and gates open at 6.30.
