Following the 5 star Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2017 award winning theatre company, Feelgood Theatre Productions, returns to Heaton Park to stage Shakespeare’s classic love story, Romeo and Juliet.
This beautiful immersive piece transforms Heaton Park into the set for the two young star crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. This outdoor show journeys through the park witnessing the passion of love at first sight between Romeo and Juliet and then follows them as them become an overpowering force that supersedes all other values, loyalties and emotions. A stellar cast bring this visceral show to life. Fused together with stunning music; dance, spectacular sword fights and a peek inside closed Heaton Hall this is an experience not to be missed!
