Shakespeare on Tap
Hampton Court Flower Show
The idea for Shakespeare on Tap was first created in 2009 with our production of Much Ado About Nothing at the Rose and Crown in Ealing and at the Rose Theatre Bankside in collaboration with Producer Tom Tucker.
In July 2009, we launched Shakespeare on Tap at the Hampton Court Flower Show as part of the All The World’s A Stage Garden for Lunaria Landscapes.
We are now a fully fledged company receiving bookings throughout the year.
Shakespeare on Tap offers short form Shakespeare to audiences everywhere.
We play in pub gardens, stately homes and cruise ships: as well as corporate events, festivals and even your own private party! We perform scenes, monologues, songs, ‘Sonnets in your bonnet’ and 50 minute versions of Shakespeare plays to suit your special event.
We are a band of players and our work features actor musicians in traditional Elizabethan dress. Our style is very audience interactive and we tell stories in a clear, fun and entertaining way.
