Twelfth Night

reimagined for everyone aged six and over

21 June 2014 - 12 July 2014

By William Shakespeare

A madcap tale of mistaken identity guaranteed to captivate younger audiences. With music, laughs and lots to join in with, Shakespeare’s original text sizzles with anticipation as confusion clears to reveal a happy-ever-after (except for that dastardly steward, Malvolio). Whether you are six or sixty, it’s the perfect play to share with all the family.

The Times

"Max Webster’s production erodes the barriers between classical drama and family-friendly fun."

The Guardian

"There is a rollicking gaiety to this production… I felt a touch of the true SHAKESPEAREAN MAGIC"

Sunday Telegraph (Tim Auld)

"THOROUGHTLY ENJOYABLE… kids, parents, boring old theatre critics like me all joining in the fun"

Angels and Urchins

"A supremely talented cast... kids are fully immersed in the story… A JOYOUS PRODUCTION"

Teaching Drama

"COLOURFUL, ENERGETIC and FUN... a great introduction to Shakespeare for young people”

The Stage

"WITTY, ENTERTAINING and IMAGINATIVE take on Shakespeare’s most wistful comedy."

Time Out



"Music is indeed the food of love in this LIVELY and ENGAGING production. The Open Air Theatre has a special enchantment that makes it the perfect place to introduce children to the theatre."
"...enough comedy, music and imagination to keep its young audience gripped, and more mature members happy too."
