Stafford Festival Shakespeare set for scorching opening weekend

Following a week of sweltering temperatures and glorious sunshine things are really heating up at Stafford Castle this weekend with the opening of this year’s Stafford Festival Shakespeare production of Macbeth.

The cast and crew have been busy with technical rehearsals up on site this week and are ready for the packed performance schedule beginning on Thursday 28th June.

Tickets have been selling like hot cakes, with over 8,600 snapped up already – smashing the total figure sold for last year’s show before opening night!

Stafford Festival Shakespeare spokesman, Thomas Waldron, says:
“It’s been a busy week for everyone involved in this year’s show and with the current heatwave sweeping the region, technical rehearsals have been particularly challenging up on site at the castle. However, are wonderful cast, crew and creative team have worked incredibly hard and we can’t wait for audiences to see our production of The Scottish Play.

Tickets are selling really well and we are expecting an influx of late bookings thanks to the glorious weather we’re currently experiencing. Why not join us this weekend or one night over the next two weeks to experience Shakespeare under the stars?”

Macbeth will open on Thursday 28th June and run until Saturday 14th July 2018 at Stafford Castle. Full ticket information and this year’s catering options can be obtained from the box office on 01785 619080 or by visiting www.staffordfestivalshakespeare.com
