2014 a very special year for Shakespeare lovers

Thursday, 6. February 2014 10:51

2014 will mark the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth and our 5th year as a touring theatre company. To celebrate we have chosen to perform Shakespeare’s classic farcical comedy The Comedy of Errors and his greatest tragedy Macbeth.

Both plays will be directed by Ed Viney who last year directed the highly successful A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Our fight director, Dan Styles has assured us of some amazing sword and fight sequences.

We are thrilled to be returning to Reading School, Kentwell Hall, Windsor, Arundel Castle, Taunton, Chepstow, Bristol and York.

Some exciting new venues will be announced shortly!

Actors wishing to audition can send their CV’s and a headshot photo to: GB Theatre Company Ltd, 17 Boileau Road, Barnes, London SW13 9BJ. Auditions will take place in the early spring and our 2014 cast will then be announced.


Shakespeare at Arundel Castle

Saturday, 24. August 2013 10:54

Tonight is the final night of our 2013 tour. Where better to finish than the magnificent Arundel Castle, home to the Duke of Norfolk & his family. We played to an audience of 600 each night and received wonderful praise from many people.

We would like to thank everybody who came to see us perform, to the people who helped us stage the shows, to the hugely talented Cast & show directors Louise Hill & Ed Viney, and to the venues, their staff and helpers.

Hopefully we will be back in 2014 with an even larger tour, so it’s not “Goodbye” merely “Adieu, Adieu, Adieu!”
