Upcoming Shows and Events

Electric Dreams @ The Priory Open Air Theatre

17th - 19th June 2021

Norton Priory Museum and gardens

‘Lord what fools these mortals be!’ 

Its Midsummer Night in 1980s Athens, four young lovers and a group of amateur actors find themselves entranced and entrapped in an enchanted forest where Rock Diva Fairies rule and a mischievous sprite is hell bent on causing havoc…what could possibly go wrong?

Exploding with a ‘totally awesome’ 80s inspired soundtrack, (featuring West End stars Zoe Curlett and Keiron Crook as the warring Queen and King of the Fairies) this retelling of ‘A Midsummer Night’s dream’ - Shakespeare’s comedy of love, secrets and mistaken identities -  will have audiences ravin’ with nostalgia and basking in ‘a kinda magic’, in the stunning setting of Norton Priory Open Air Theatre!’

‘…you have but slumbered here… While these visions did appear’

Made possible with funding from Arts Council England and presented as part of Halton's Borough of Culture Year 2021

Macbeth @ The Priory Open Air Theatre

23rd & 24th July 2021

Norton Priory Museum and gardens

Join us for the inaugural performance in the newly created Woodland Theatre Space at the Priory Open Air Theatre.  

Something wicked this way comes...

The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.
This epic and visually daring production of Shakespeare’s most intense tragedy is the inaugural production at The Priory Open Air Theatre. The theatre space is wild and open to the elements which enhances and contributes to the atmosphere of this dark and tragic tale.

Produced by A Place For Us.
"I was blown away by the performances of this theatre group" - Amy Swag: North West End

This is an outdoor performance. There is no formal seating - there are a limited number of 'log benches' but you are encouraged to bring fold up chairs, cushions, rugs or picnic blankets to make your experience more comfortable.

Presented as part of Halton's Borough of Culture Year 2021
