Sevenoaks Shakespeare Society
We aim to provide a means of promoting, enjoying and understanding the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. We mount a full-scale Shakespeare production once a year, most recently in the open air as part of the Sevenoaks Summer Festival, and arrange a variety of activities during the year, such as workshops and theatre visits, as well as social events.
Although we are based in Sevenoaks and district we draw our membership from a wide area in west Kent and southeast London. New members are always welcome and a membership application form can be downloaded from here.
For further information, please contact us.
Look out for details of forthcoming social events here soon!
Our next production...
...will be Much Ado About Nothing in next year's Sevenoaks Summer Festival in June/July 2013. Full details are on this notice (PDF 283KB). Auditions have already been held but some parts remain to be cast and as usual lots of help is needed backstage and in production roles, so if you are interested in taking part in any way please complete and return by email this form (Word DOC 59KB). For further information please email the production team.
Last performed by the Society in 2001, this is one of Shakespeare's most sparkling romantic comedies. The play features the 'merry war' between Beatrice and Benedick, the seemingly doomed romance of Claudio and Hero and the antics of Dogberry and the
Watch, surely among the Bard's greatest comic creations.
