Outdoor Theatre at Sudeley Castle
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men – with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself – invite you to join them this summer at the Outdoor Theatre at Sudeley Castle. They will be performing the sparkling pastoral comedy As You Like It, on Thursday, 21 July, 7pm, (gates open 6pm), with an all male cast. Shakespeare first saw it performed in the open air, by an all male cast, with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the Cotswold Hills, Sudeley Castle sets a striking backdrop for this performance.
The Castle has played an important role in the turbulent and changing times of England’s past, with royal connections stretching back 1000 years. Richard III, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and Charles I all played their part in defining the Castle’s history, and Tudor queen and last of Henry VIII’s wives, Katherine Parr, is laid to rest in the castle’s Church. This performance takes place within the atmospheric Banqueting Hall ruins.
