Summer tour 2022
VENUES and BOOKING
This summer, join Scoot for our outdoor, family-friendly, sixty-minute production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream!'
Touring (mainly) cricket clubs in the South East, six actor-musicians present one of Shakespeare’s favourite comedies, with a Scoot ‘spin’!
Get ready for confusion, chaos and costume changes!
Whether you’re 5 or 105, a Shakespeare newcomer or a Bard aficionado – we’ve got something for everyone! So bring a picnic blanket, enjoy the hospitality of your local cricket club and let us entertain you.
"The course of true love never did run smooth..."
Hermia loves Lysander. Lysander loves Hermia. But Demetrius loves Hermia. And Helena loves Demetrius.
They all run into the woods where the mischievous sprite Puck has plenty of tricks in store for them! Meanwhile, the local cricket team is getting together to rehearse a play…
Expect music, magic, and cricket bat sword fights!
“I loved it”
“Hilarious…accessible for all ages”
Scoot was formed to tour high quality, professional theatre to non-traditional spaces. In 2020, our two-week tour of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ was seen by 2500 people and picked up a 4 star review in The Telegraph.
We are a community-focused company, aiming to add value in the places we work.
We are particularly excited about engaging new audiences.
We hope you’ll join us for a chat after the performance.
We’ll be offering a very informal Question and Answer session after each show.
This is for anyone who might want to know more about the plays, Shakespeare or theatre in general. It’s completely voluntary of course but we’d love to hear your thoughts, reactions and maybe find out what you’d like to see us do next!
SCOOT THEATRE ARE INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL TO EDWARD HALL AND ROGER WARREN FOR THE USE OF THEIR ADAPTATION
Can I bring a chair?
You're welcome to bring picnic chairs and blankets. Seating areas are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis on the day.
Can I buy tickets on the Door?
All tickets must be purchased in advance.
Do I have to stay for the chat at the end?
Of course not! We’d love it if you did!
Let's talk about the weather...
Part of the fun of outdoor performances is embracing the Great British Weather! In our experience we’d say it's best to come prepared for all types. There is the possibility that we may have to stop and re-start the show and we will do everything we can to get to the end of the performance!
On very rare occasions, it may not be possible for us to complete the performance (this only happened once last year – so we rearranged the date). But, we will never cancel a performance before the advertised start time. We know from experience how quickly bad weather can clear up and give us the perfect gap for our sixty-minute show!
For the refund policy for your venue, please check in with the partner theatre you have booked your tickets through.
What about accessibility?
