Tolethorpe Youth Drama Theatre Makers will also present Jessica Swale’s Blue Stockings (July).

Described by The Sunday Times as “One of the finest things to do this summer” and The Stage as “One of England’s premier alfresco theatre venues” it really is an experience not to be missed.

The theatre is situated in the grounds of historic Tolethorpe Hall, surrounded by wonderful Rutland countryside.

The auditorium faces an open air stage set within an idyllic woodland glade. The permanent canopy above the audience means no performance is ever cancelled because of inclement weather.

Visitors can choose to enjoy a picnic in the glorious gardens or book a meal in The Bistro, new for the 2023 season.

There is also a theatre bar for enjoying pre-performance and interval drinks, and a spacious orangery where interval coffee is served.

Tickets range from £15 to £22 and can be booked by calling 01780 917240 or visiting https://tolethorpe.co.uk/whats-on

The box office is now managed in-house at Tolethorpe Hall and in person bookings can unfortunately no longer be taken at Stamford Arts Centre.
