Open Air Theatre - Much Ado About Nothing

Open Air Theatre - Much Ado About Nothing

Details

Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing - a rip-roaring comedy of quarrels, deceptions and a frustratingly stupid man called Dogberry.

The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays across the UK.

The Fools perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting - castles, cathedrals, historic houses, gardens, churches, market places, village greens, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a crowded pub and a garlic farm – all the world's a stage!

You can see this motley troupe at Sandringham this summer.

Bring your seat or rug and a picnic or you can make use of the Stables Tearoom and enjoy this excellent live entertainment in the beautiful setting of the gardens at Sandringham.
