We hope you’re all enjoying your summer. We know that many of you start thinking about your table themes and costumes while you’re travelling so here’s a heads-up on this year’s event.
The theme for the Charity Gala 2016 is A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Here’s a photo of the winning pitch!
Twist and turn the theme any way you please.
Shakespeare famously sourced his work from myths, legends and masques. Feel free to bring in ideas from any of his plays and reimagine his characters any way you want, just as a theatre director would do.
You can also look to the Broadway shows that he inspired for ideas. The Lion King, Wicked and West Side Story are all based on Shakespeare’s works. As is Black Adder!
Comedy, tragedy, gender politics, heroes and villains. We expect it all.
Please mark your calendars for Saturday 3 December and join us for an evening of Shakespearean inspired shenanigans.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
With best wishes
The Charity Gala Committee
