Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre announces its 10th anniversary season
The award-winning Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, founded in 2010 by Storyhouse (then Chester Performs) has announced its 2019 season is on sale.
Alex Clifton, artistic director Storyhouse said: ‘it is so wonderful to be on sale with this summer’s park shows – a monumental year as we celebrate being double figures!”
The season opens on Friday 5 July with Twelfth Night (until 24 August), Shakespeare’s comedy about cross dressing and mistaken identities, Julia Thomas (A Clockwork Orange) will direct. Whilst the Bard’s history play, Henry V (26 July – 25 August) be directed by Loveday Ingram (Julius Caesar, Storyhouse). Mary Norton’s story of little people who borrow in order to survive, The Borrowers (13 July – 25 August) complete the programme, Katie Posner (Swallows and Amazons Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre) will direct.
Clifton continued “Our productions will explore borders – whether real or imagined, being a stranger in a foreign land and the impact of leaving home. Like all of our season’s audiences can expect to feel joy, heartache and be riveted beneath our starry roof.’
Back in 2010, the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre was a simple wooden stage and would play to 2500 over three weeks. Throw forward to today and the addition of a thrust stage to a full in the round theatre. Over 40% of its seats are now covered, and its capacity has doubled.
