Shakespeare spectacular at Highdown Gardens
Released: Tuesday, 30 May 2017
All the world's a stage as Worthing's celebrated Highdown Gardens prepares for its summer open air extravaganza for theatre-lovers.
The famous chalk gardens, owned and run by Worthing Borough Council, will provide the stunning backdrop for three of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays:
- Othello - Tuesday 13th June and Wednesday 14th June
- A Midsummer Night’s Dream - Tuesday 11th July to Sunday 16th July
- The Merchant of Venice - Tuesday 18th July to Sunday 23rd July
There's also a special treat for children, with an adaptation of the Kenneth Grahame novel:
- The Wind in the Willows - from Tuesday 25th July to Friday 28th July.
All of the performances will be staged in the glorious setting of the Lower Garden at Highdown, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the death of its founder Sir Frederick Stern in July.
The productions - by SISATA Open Air Theatre, Rainbow Theatre and JW Productions - are just part of the town's exciting summer of entertainment, which the Council hopes will encourage even more visitors to Discover Worthing.
Tickets, priced from £8 to £16, are available through the Highdown Gardens website and, with afternoon and evening performances, guests are invited to bring picnics to make the occasion even more memorable.
