"A triumphant return and a tantalising promise of great things to come in the park!"
Manchester Theatre Awards 2017
"A Midsummer Night's Dream 2017"
By Feelgood Theatre Productions
Outdoor Promenade Performance
Heaton Park & Hall, 26th July - 3rd August 2017
This stunning walk about production in the beautiful park culminated in three weddings and a rustic play inside the wonderful Heaton Hall. A stellar cast lead Shakespeare's greatest comedy led by the antics of Puck and the mechanicals and a whole bunch of fairies.
The show blends the past and the present with the Hall’s celebrated Egerton family making a spirited “appearance” in a few of the leading roles… Glorious music from Handel, G&S and Oasis will delight all as the cast sing, dance and act their way around the park before heading inside the Hall for the finale of three weddings and a rustic play!

"Was lucky enough to catch Midsummer Night's Dream at Heaton Park. I was mesmerised, blown away, enthralled and generally overcome which, considering I'm one of those folk who doesn't 'get' Shakespeare is very high praise. A solid cast and imaginative use of the park made fora fantastic evening. I don't care what you guys are doing next, whether it's Chekov or Cinderella, I'm there! Thanks for a great night x
