Following the recent Government announcement on ‘Outdoor Theatre’, KD Theatre Productions (the company behind Ely’s Annual Pantomime) are delighted to be presenting an open-air production of ‘Treasure Island’ which promises to be fun for all the family this summer!
The production will take place in the beautiful grounds of The Deans Garden, Ely Cathedral from the 26th – 29th August (twice daily), with audience following social distancing measures.
Last year’s production of ‘Peter Pan’ was a tremendous success, and KD had to delay plans for their proposed production this summer, until recently when the guidance changed. It’s all systems ‘go’ as the team prepare for this ‘swashbuckling’ production!
Katherine and Daniel, Producers of KD said “We are over the moon to be able to bring back high quality professional theatre to the people of Ely this Summer! We have gathered a cast of brilliant performers including some sensational variety and circus acts! Audience members can expect barrels of laughter and all the fun and frolics you would expect from a KD production! After a strange few months, ‘Treasure Island’ will be the perfect family treat this summer knowing we can all enjoy theatre again in a safe environment’’
A spokesperson for the Cathedral said “Ely Cathedral are delighted to welcome back KD Theatre Productions. Families and the community can once again enjoy outdoor theatre in the beautiful grounds surrounding our magnificent Cathedral”
Performances are daily at 2pm & 6pm with the garden opening 1 hour prior to the performance for families to enjoy picnics in the garden. Tickets go on sale Saturday 18th July at 10.00am online at www.kdtheatre.co.uk or by calling the Box Office on 01353 725 026. Book early to avoid disappointment as there is limited capacity to allow for social distancing.
