This week, from Thursday to Saturday, the Palace Theatre comes alive when Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night is played out with a 1920s feel.

The Mansfield Palace Community Theatre have been working hard at bringing the humour and fun alive in this production with the good feel, fun-filled 1920s enhancing the comedy.

Shakespeare’s gags and fun at others’ expense have been making people laugh for over 400 years.

Having set the play in the 1920s, with a new original score, the visual glamour and a post-war confidence in this Charleston era, Christopher Neil, the director, says references are made to the Vaudeville clowns and antics while giving some of the songs in the play a Music Hall treatment.

See the play from Thursday June 30, to Saturday July 2. Tickets are priced at £8.50 full / £7.50 concessions./ Children aged 10+ and students £6 / family of four £25. Call 01623 633133 or visit www.mansfield.gov.uk/palacetheatre.
