Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre 2016




Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre returns for another raucous summer! Our 2016 season will present Shakespeare’s As You Like It and The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and a new adaptation of Stig of the Dump.

With one of the century’s best-selling and enduring children’s classics, Clive King’s Stig of the Dump – the wonderful tale of the lovably time-shifting Neanderthal. This is brought to you by the same team as the sell-out hits The Wind in the Willows and The Secret Garden.

The classic and massively popular As You Like It is our headline Shakespeare for the season, with the bard’s ridiculous The Two Gentleman of Verona completing the line – that’s three comedies, although only one with a caveman
