Elysium goes Elizabethan and Edwardian in 2013

We are excited to announce that the Elysium Theatre Company will be returning to Buckland Abbey in July for another Shakespearean Heritage Weekend: this year we will be presenting several of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies in our signature immersive style, complete with living history activities, music, dance and more. This time we aim to recreate the sights and sounds of Elizabethan England, and hope to work with several re-enactment groups including the Renaissance Footnotes, who specialise in participatory dance from the Tudor period (so bring your dancing shoes)!

Later in the year we will be jumping into the Edwardian period with some new plays from our ensemble based around the early 1900s and the events taking place locally. We are due to perform at Castle Drogo in September for their Edwardian weekend event, and at Poltimore House in November.

As well as these events we will continue to offer training opportunities for young actors, workshops and free performances for local schools, and Shakespeare performances for the public in Exeter. Keep an eye out for dates and ticket info and we look forward to seeing you at some of our shows!
