The Festival Players present:
William Shakespeare’s ‘THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR’
Gates open at 6.30pm
This is the 10th year of organizing a charity event at Raglan Castle, in collaboration with The Festival Players Theatre Company, and this year the ‘Merry Wives’ will be at the castle on 18th August.
Presented in full costume, the all-male company brings the fun of this farcical Shakespeare play, bustling with colourful characters and full of intrigues and physical gags, in a fast-paced 2-hour production.
This event is to raise funds for Wales Air Ambulance. The charity must raise £6million every year to operate the service, with each mission costing £1,500.
Raglan Castle is a glorious setting for outdoor theatre. As the sun goes down the walls of the castle create a ghostly silhouette against the glowing sky. The castle will be lit by Jersey Electrical Services, and the contrast between the night sky and the lighting on the castle walls creates a magical atmosphere, making the actors on stage glow in the semi dark.
Tickets: £13 in advance; Child under 16 £9; £15 at the gate
Tickets available from the Shire Hall, Monmouth NP25 3DY, 01600 775257
