A Happy Ending To Outdoor Season

7 August 2014

There’s just a few days left to join in the fairytale fun which has been wowing audiences in Lancaster this summer.

For August 16 sees the final performance of The Dukes Hansel & Gretel And More Tales From The Forest in Williamson Park.

And during the six week run, the Lancaster theatre reached the milestone of 500,000 people having seen The Dukes outdoor walkabout shows since they began in 1987.

This year’s production, written by Ulverston’s Zosia Wand, not only features  Hansel & Gretel but also many other fairytale characters with a vegetarian wolf and tricylcing frog becoming firm favourites with audiences.

Together with original music, fantastic costumes and five striking locations, this year’s show has been described as one of the best yet by theatregoers.

The fun is set to continue next year when The Dukes presents its own adaptation of the popular Dickens story – Oliver Twist.

Booking has already opened for the 2015 park show which will be written by Debbie Oates whose adaptations of Treasure Island and A Christmas Carol for The Dukes in 2012 and 2013 proved a hit with audiences.

To book tickets for the final performances of Hansel & Gretel or to plan ahead for Oliver Twist, call The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or visit www.dukes-lancaster.org.
