Woolton Drama Group brings Hamlet to unusual locations in South Liverpool
Woolton Drama Group is bringing a new version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet to unusual locations in South Liverpool – a local church and park.
Adapted and directed by David Jeffery, Woolton Drama Group will be performing Hamlet in St. James’ Church, Woolton, and the Walled Gardens at Sudley House.
Building on the successes of 2017 – Dick Whittington the Pantomime and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – Woolton Drama Group are looking forward to putting on another high-quality show, suitable for Shakespeare newbies or long-term fans of the Bard.
Director David Jeffery commented: “Hamlet is consistently ranked one of Shakespeare’s best plays, and the cast are enjoying sinking their teeth into the script. We’re all very excited to be able to perform this play in two unusual locations – the atmosphere in St. James’ Church will be phenomenal, and the Walled Gardens will let people enjoy Shakespeare in the sun.”
Thursday 7th – Friday 8th September – 7:30pm start – St. James’ Church, Church Road, Woolton, L25 7RJ
Saturday 9th September – 11:30am and 2:30pm – The Walled Gardens in Sudley House, Mossley Hill Rd, L18 8BX
Doors open 30 mins before the performance starts.
The Walled Gardens is outdoors and uncovered. People are welcome to bring picnics, blankets, etc. Parking at both venues is limited, so we encourage people to use public transport where possible.
Tickets cost £7 adult, £6 concession, and are available for purchase from www.wegottickets.com/hamlet. For a limited time only we’re waiving the booking fee too!
Run time: 1h45 plus interval.
