Pyramus and Thisbe: A Participatory Performance

An Exciting Participatory Workshop and Public Performances

Coinciding with the Belper Well Dressings, on July 19th and 20th July Strutt's North Mill Museum is hosting a theatrical performance in the North Mill and around the River Gardens called 'Pyramus and Thisbe'. We are working in partnership with the Shakespeare 1623 Theatre Company. There will be ab exciting participatory workshop for anyone keen to be involved in performing and the set design, followed by public performances.

PYRAMUS AND THISBE: the workshop, 1-⁠3pm
Join Peter Quince's theatrical troupe as he rehearses his tragic new play about forbidden lovers Pyramus and Thisbe.
You'll be cast in a part or given a costume to make, as North Mill basement turns into a hive of theatrical activity. 2 hours to get the show ready for performance in Belper River Gardens at 4pm and 6pm.

PYRAMUS AND THISBE : the show, 4-⁠4.30pm and 6-⁠6.30pm
Be prepared for an hilarious take on the ancient love story of Pyramus and Thisbe, as told by Shakespeare in A Midsummer Night's Dream and performed by people from Belper and surrounding areas. The actors have had just two hours to get the show ready for you. What could possibly go wrong?!

Tickets for the performances are on sale now from Strutt's North Mill and cost £4 for adults and £2 for children, with refreshments included. For those taking part in the workshop it is free. To book tickets contact us on or 01773 880474.
