We’re thrilled that The Dukes has teamed up with Williamson Park to bring this fantastic park show to audiences for summer 2021. The Dukes has been entertaining generations of families with their summer promenade shows since 1987, attracting a total of more than half a million people. And with 2020’s show unable to go ahead due to the coronavirus pandemic – the team have been pulling out all the stops to deliver an amazing theatrical adventure for everyone to enjoy this year. In line with government restrictions and Covid-safety, there will be a reduced number of tickets on sale to support social distancing measures – early booking is highly recommended.
This witty and captivating adaptation by Andrew Pollard will be directed by Sarah Punshon, who headed up The Dukes’ fabulous outdoor performance of The Three Musketeers in 2018. We think that Grimm Tales: Witches, Wolves, Fairies and Frogs is sure to sprinkle some magic on summer 2021 in Lancaster.
