Two new productions for June – A Midsummer Night’s Dream & Ladies Day


Romford Summer Theatre

Midsummer magic!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream: A confection of love and dreams – magic, mayhem and merriment … like chocolate, there is a light and a dark side. This wonderful play has been done in many ways, and, as we make the most of the pretty Rockery setting, we invite you to share in our 2017 Dream – whatever the weather!   Havering’s alternative to Regents Park?  A fraction of the cost and no travel! Why not bring a friend, bring a picnic … bring a coach party!  Tickets £10 on the gate or in advance* 8pm nightly on 22-24 June & 29-1 July, plus matinee on Sunday 2 July www.romfordsummertheatre.com

*Tickets sold in advance cannot be refunded, but patrons are welcome to come to a subsequent performance during this run.

Romford Summer Theatre has been performing Shakespeare in the park for over 60 years

Car parking: enter from Parkway Bus: 174, 498 and N86 stop right outside the park on Main Road.  Train: Nearest stations are Gidea Park &   Romford – 20 minute walk from either.

Ladies’ Day

Amanda Whittington’s exuberant comedy about four likely lasses from the Hull fish docks. Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for this fish-filleting foursome – until they have a trip to Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot the year it relocated to York. Drinks, flirting and a flutter – it turns out that people are not always what they seem … Ladies’ Day is Guildonian’s entry into this year’s Havering Drama Festival.  June 7-10 (Wednesday to Saturday)  8pm nightly, plus 2.30pm Saturday matinee

Guildonian Players The Little Theatre Methodist Church The Drive Harold Wood RM3 0DU

(Still only £7 a ticket – they’re the hottest seats in town!)
