J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan launches the 2015 Open Air Theatre season.

Opening on 15 May, Artistic Director Timothy Sheader rediscovers J. M. Barrie’s original stage play of Peter Pan. Creating a Never Land where danger stalks dreams and adventure breeds mischief, imagination takes flight in this darkly comic tale.

This is followed by the first of Chekhov’s great works, The Seagull, a play which opens with guests arriving at a country house for the staging of an open air production! This new version by Torben Betts is directed by Matthew Dunster (A Midsummer Night’s Dream 2012).

Always a highlight of the summer season, our 2015 musical is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, a classic from the Golden Age of the movie musical. With songs including ‘Bless Your Beautiful Hide’, the production reunites the team behind our award-winning production of The Sound of Music.

To conclude our season, but for just 14 performances (so early booking is recommended), our acclaimed production of Lord of the Flies, William Golding’s story of survival, superstition and immorality, returns prior to a major UK tour.
