Castle Players present Twelfth Night

Castle Players present Twelfth Night

The Witham

Performed in the beautiful grounds of the Bowes Musuem.
The Castle Players’ outdoor summer production this year is ‘Twelfth Night’ – one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies. A tale of mistaken identity, cross-dressing and identical twins, ‘Twelfth Night’ is a multi-layered exploration of love and longing. The action takes place in the mythical land of Illyria, where Viola has been shipwrecked after a storm at sea.
The production will be given the usual Castle Players’ inimitable twist, with the theme this year being ‘Victorian Steampunk’ – goggles, time-pieces, cogs and eccentric machinery abound, with some sumptuous multilayered Victorian costume and one or two unexpected surprises along the way.
Highly suitable for all the family, the production takes place on the back lawn of The Bowes Museum, with covered raked seating in our fully equipped temporary outdoor theatre auditorium. We are very excited to announce Wednesday’s production will be an integrated BSL signed performance.
Ticket prices (no boxes this season):
Preview night Tue 4 July: Covered: £10; Uncovered £8; Ground mats: £1
