Wiz Around Watchtree!

From Watchtree Nature Reserve: “Just a quick one to say a huge thank you to The Walking Theatre Company, our volunteers and all of the wonderful visitors who came to follow the yellow brick road! An awesome evening and some pennies in the charity pot. The icing on the cake was the rain started just as I locked the gates.”

BIG THANKS to Watchtree Nature Reserve in Cumbria for inviting TWTC to perform ‘WIZ AROUND OZ’ at their beautiful venue on the 6th of August. What a brilliant time we had – such a stunning location, and a super audience! Hope to see you all again soon!

We have just been sent this fantastic post from our friends at Loch Lomond Shores who shared a wonderful review of yesterday’s Walking Theatre performance of ‘Conference of the Faeries’, A Midsummer Nights Dream adaption! Many thanks to our lovely audience member who shared such kind words – and thanks to all our audience members who made the performance so much fun!

Loch Lomond Shores

Just had this lovely review from a visitor who attended the Adaptation of a Midsummer Night’s Dream at Loch Lomond Shores yesterday. A massive thank you to you guys.
“Great afternoon with walking theatre company. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was good to see children experiencing a taste of Shakespeare . Great introduction for them to the classics.WTC worked very hard and we would certainly come to see them again. Wonderful entertainment is a spectacular setting.”

A Walking Theatre Whirlwind Weekend

And despite Britain being caught in the dying thralls of Hurricane Bertha, TWTC has manned and womaned up and given our deliciously soggy best. Midsummers Nights Dream at Dunollie on Friday night was brilliant and the sturdy cast and audience were rewarded with Prosecco and cappuccino – thanks Dunollie! Today we reach Shettleston with our brilliant ‘Commonwealth Kitchen’, Alice McKerrow and Steph Falls, do what TWTC does best entertain, whatever the weather. Thanks to our amazing actors and our brilliant audiences… Tomorrow Kirkintilloch, for WWII Flying Kitchen.
