Chatsworth Players

Chatsworth Players, the Peak Park’s award-winning theatre company, is heading to outdoor venues in Derbyshire with Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. One of theatre’s original Rom-Coms, Twelfth Night is full of unrequited love, mistaken identities, swordfights, and general tomfoolery.

The Players normally perform in the theatre at Chatsworth House, which only seats 100 people. With only six performances for each show, tickets usually sell out weeks in advance. “Performing out of doors at seven venues across Derbyshire means more people will have the opportunity to see the show,” said Chatsworth Players’ Chair, Lindsay Jackson, who is also directing the play. “Shakespeare’s plays were all originally performed outdoors so it will aim to be a very authentic production.” The Players’ production of A Midsummer Nights’ Dream (also directed by Jackson) won the NODA East Midlands Representative’s special award for 2023, so expectations are high for another excellent production.

Twelfth Night will be performed at the following venues:

• Whirlow Brook Hall, Sheffield, 11th July, 7.00pm

• Cromford Mills, 12th July, 7.00pm

• The Whitworth, Darley Dale, 13th July, 7.00pm

• Eyam Hall, 14th July, 2.00pm

• Wildhive Callow Hall, Ashbourne, 18th July, 7.00pm

• Over Haddon Village Hall, 19th July, 7.00pm

• Park Rangers House, Chatsworth, 20th July, 7.00pm

• Park Rangers House, Chatsworth, 21st July, 2.00pm

Tickets are £12.50 and are available from the Chatsworth Players Website,
