SHAKESPEARE with ‘the dull bits taken out’ is the promise from the Midhurst Players as they offer Much Ado About Shakespeare as their latest production.

The show will be staged at the Midhurst Rother College (Easebourne site) from Thursday, April 12, until Saturday, April 14.

Director Julie Tickner said as a showman, she hoped Shakespeare would be amused.

“It’s quite light. It is helpful if you have a knowledge of Shakespeare, but it is not essential.

“It is entertaining in its own right. There is music and there is a little bit of dancing.

“It’s everything you would expect a revue to have - variety and lots of short pieces.”

Tickets for the production are priced £8 and £5 (16 and under), call 01730 814419 for details and to book.
