Sunday July 5 – The Winter’s Tale
The Magic of Shakespeare brought to life for you by the peerless Taking Flight Theatre Company starts at 2pm. This romantic tragi-comedy is a story of loss, repentance love and reconciliation and is brought to you this summer in true Taking Flight style…. Join the party at a lively jazz club where toe-tapping music might even get you dancing. Then watch as jealousy destroys this vibrant world, leaving it devoid of promise and in a state of eternal winter. Don’t despair, though: you’ll be whisked over the sea to a place where music, love and plenty of laughter can heal these tragic wounds.
