Dream date for King's Lynn Player's Shakespeare Guildhall fundraiser




Shakespeare’s Guildhall Trust’s latest fundraiser performance will be a Dream evening on Friday, June 21.

William Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’, courtesy of the award-winning King’s Lynn Players, will be held at Lynn’s Guildhall (Arts Centre).

Chairman of the trust, Ivor Rowlands, said: “We were delighted to accept Sharon Fox’s very kind offer from the KL Players to support an SGT fundraiser performance.

“We are especially happy they are including the very, very, talented young players. Sharon, the director, has put together a cast of 17 talented young players, all seasoned performers, and eight guest adults.

“They will bring this shortened version of the play, appealing to all ages, to the stage – helping to keep the oldest working theatre in the country working!

“There will be lots of fun before the show, at 6.30pm, using the left-hand door at the front of the Guildhall.

“Walk into the picturesque garden at the Riverside Restaurant for sparkly fairy face painting, sparkly fairy cakes, made by the restaurant, and a prize for the best fairy wings. Start making them now – it’s open to all ages!”

There are contingency plans if the weather is not in the production’s favour.

At 7.30pm you then climb the outside staircase to watch this magical play.

Shakespeare wrote Midsummer Night’s Dream in the 1590s during the period he is associated with the Guildhall in Lynn.
