RSC invites school and college groups to tread its boards

Stratford Editorial 9th Feb, 2018   0

THEATRE companies, schools and colleges are once again being offered the chance to tread the RSC’s outside boards in Stratford.

The RSC is inviting groups to put on a play by, or a new play inspired by, Shakespeare or his contemporaries at The Dell on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer.

The RSC’s open air performance space near Holy Trinity Church will be staging performances from June 2 to August 26.

RSC events officer Lizzie Mara said: “The Dell is a brilliant platform for amateur theatre companies, community groups, schools, universities and professional theatre companies to perform to an audience of all ages right in the heart of Shakespeare’s hometown.

“Audiences love the free productions that companies bring to The Dell, and enjoy the unique atmosphere that comes from plays being performed outside by the River Avon during the summer months. I can’t wait to see what performances we get to welcome this year.”
