reading to be held in Burnham's Princess Theatre
to the wet weather tonight's (Monday 25th August) reading of Shakespeares
Midsummer Nights Dream will be held in the Princess Theatre
reading was due to take part in Marine Cove as part of this summer's
Take Art 'What Change Burnham' project.
Shakespeares most enchanting comedy is to be read through
and filmed, to be then shown at a 'What Change' celebration day
on 20th September in The Princess Theatre.
Kim Cook from the Princess Theatre Company explained: "Everyone
is welcome to come along to either watch or read. You can take
a role for the whole play or just read in for one act. Its
about just turning up and enjoying Shakespeare in an informal
and friendly atmosphere, and Marine Cove would have been perfect
for a Midsummer Nights Dream but we are grateful that we
can hold it at the Princess Theatre instead."
event meets at 6pm to start reading at 7pm, and scripts will be
provided. Kim added: "Its suitable for the whole family.
We have fairy wings for the children and solar lighting. Hopefully
this will be the catalyst to encourage more groups to stage outdoor
theatre in Burnham. Marine Cove is such a wonderful asset for
Burnham and we are so fortunate to be able to use it for events."
