Open Air Theatre at Lincoln Castle this summer!



Open Air Theatre at Lincoln Castle this summer!

Lincoln Castle in association with Lincoln Drill Hall present 3 fantastic open air theatre events, brought to you by the wonderful Illyria!
Bring a delicious picnic and a bottle of something lovely and relax in the beautiful grounds of Lincoln's historic castle whilst enjoying these fabulous performers in 3 exciting shows. What better way to spend a summer evening with all the family

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
Everyone wants to marry mild-mannered Bianca. No-one wants to marry her acid-tongued older sister Kate. Their father won’t let anyone marry Bianca until a husband can be found for Kate – but no-one knows anyone mad enough to take her on. Until Petruchio comes to town. What happens when a woman who suffers no fools meets a loud-mouthed braggart when neither is ever lost for words? Sparks are guaranteed to fly in Shakespeare’s rumbustious battle-of-the-sexes comedy, where nobody is exactly who they appear to be!

IOLANTH
IOLANTHE
Gilbert and Sullivan's magical comic opera is about Iolanthe, a fairy, who falls in love with a mortal. Her resulting death sentence under fairy law is commuted by the Fairy Queen to banishment. 25 years later her son, Strephon, falls in love with the Lord Chancellor of England’s ward, Phyllis. But the Lord Chancellor was Iolanthe’s mortal lover, who, believing her dead, intends to marry Phyllis himself....  Set half in Fairyland, half in Westminster, its surprisingly topical satire pokes fun at Love, Class and Politics – and at characters from extremely different backgrounds (fairy/mortal and left/right politics) forming uneasy coalitions!

Running time (approx): 2hr 0mins (including 20 minute interval)

Suitable for: all ages 5+

THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE
The original boy-wizard story was most famously told in Disney’s Fantasia, where the title role was played by Mickey Mouse! Bored of chores, the apprentice waves a wand and a broom magically fetches water. But what is the spell to make it stop? In desperation he saws it in half and everything spirals out of control… This show features the original music by Paul Dukas (as used in Fantasia);  more water then you have EVER seen in a play before; and eye-popping magical illusions designed by the world famous illusionist Paul Daniels.  Exciting, magical family fun for all ages 5+!
