All the world's a stage! Open air theatre returns to Shrewsbury Castle this summer as The Lord Chamberlain's Men invite you to join them for Shakespeare's sparkling comedy, As You Like It.

One of the UK's finest touring theatre companies present this great play as Shakespeare first saw it performed - in the open air, by an all male cast and with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.

Rosalind, Celia, Orlando, Duke Senior and his courtiers are banished and set up new lives in the Forest of Arden. Free from the constraints of their former lives, everyone wrestles with what it really means to be yourself, as they find true love and identity in the forest. 

This rustic romp packed with music, laughs, cross-dressing confusion and a dash of wrestling will keep you smiling to the last. Bring a chair and a picnic and prepare to be entertained. Early booking advised.

7pm | £20 |Child £10
