Families in the Tamworth area of Staffordshire are being invited to enjoy four outdoor theatrical performances taking place in the town's picturesque Castle Grounds this summer. The outdoor theatre season starts on Saturday 18 June with the visit of Oddsocks Productions who take classic texts and create bold, challenging innovative and interactive theatre to be enjoyed by all. They will be performing Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare’s romantic romp that delivers inimitable, hilarious and irreverent style for the summer of 2023. The performance, which takes place from 6.30 pm, will portray the drama and deception of the play, along with a mix of songs and silliness to create a theatre event you won’t forget.

Next up is the visit of Heartbreak Productions as they cordially invite an audience to this year’s Sense and Sensibility Matchmaker’s Ball on Sunday 16 July. Ladies Elinor and Marianne Dashwood each seek to meet an honourable man of good fortune by whatever means necessary. This production of Jane Austen’s social satire of the ups and downs of Regency romance takes place from 7pm.

Tethered Wits then brings an outdoor production of the beloved story of an extraordinary animal doctor to life using stunning puppetry. Doctor Dolittle takes to the stage on Friday 28 July at 2.30pm for a family fun show about the doctor who can talk to animals, and they can talk back! Suitable for children over the age of three years.

The second production from Tethered Wits will be later the same day, at 7.30pm, as The Great Gatsby entertains an audience over the age of 12, to a 1920s New York story told through the eyes of Nick Carraway. Audiences will be introduced to the high-fliers of glitzy Manhattan. However, when Nick meets a certain Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, he realises the parties are not always what they seem. This performance features the music of Cole Porter and George Gershwin live on stage, so get suited and booted in your best Roaring 20s finery for an unforgettable night.

Four outdoor theatre performances at Tamworth Castle Grounds

For all four performances, people are invited to bring their own picnic, chairs and blankets (refreshments will be available to purchase from onsite facilities) and be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the show! Audiences are asked not to bring glass or gazebos.

Anica Goodwin, Executive Director for Tamworth Borough Council, said: “We’re delighted to be able to bring not one, but four amazing outdoor theatre performances to Tamworth this summer. We are eager to showcase these productions from our beautiful Castle Grounds and feel lucky to have our large and picturesque Castle Grounds which enables people to come and enjoy an afternoon or evening of entertainment with their families. Tickets are on sale, so get booking now!”
