Oddsocks presents ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ in the park

Friends of Middleton Park  welcome back Oddsocks Theatre Company for a night of Shakespeare in the park next Tuesday (11 July 2023).

If you think that sounds a bit heavy for a Tuesday night, you clearly haven’t seen Oddsocks before. The company perform Shakespeare with a twist of pantomime and it’s always a gloriously funny, family-friendly show.

Much Ado About Nothing is a romantic romp as drama and deception mix with sun, songs and silliness to create a theatre event you won’t forget as this “Hugely funny” (The Stage) company hit the road with their “energetic, downright silly, utterly professional and totally inventive theatre” (East Midlands Theatre Review).

The Stage gave a 4 star review saying:

“Oddsocks excels in an entertaining show which succeeds as both farce and a perfect introduction to Shakespeare.”

The show is on Tuesday 11 July at the Bandstand next to the Visitor Centre in Middleton Park. The performance, which is suitable for all ages from 7-107, starts at 7pm.

Please bring your own chair or blanket to sit out on. An umbrella might be useful as the show will go ahead rain or shine. Refreshments will be served in the visitor centre.
