Salisbury Playhouse’s Stage 65 Youth Theatre will perform its latest production in the beautiful surroundings of the garden at Salisbury Museum, inspired by the museum’s current exhibition British Art: Ancient Landscapes. The production which runs from August 17 to 19 is inspired by Wiltshire landscapes, including Stonehenge.
The performance follows the course of the longest day of the year, with the rising and the setting sun portrayed on a specially constructed set. The young people in the production will be encouraged to respond to the exhibition through various roles: those of a scientist, an archaeologist, a punk hippy and a 21st century teenager.
A Sublime Feelingis a special theatre performance produced in association with Kazzum, a London-based arts organisation whose tagline is “playful theatre, unusual spaces”. Kazzum specialises in devising productions in non-traditional venues for young people using playful and inclusive methods.
Tickets cost £12 or £9 for under 16s. Contact the ticket office on 01722 320333 or visit www.salisburyplayhouse.com
British Art: Ancient Landscapes runs until September 3 and includes work by John Constable, JMW Turner, Eric Ravilious, John Piper and others, focussing on how our surroundings have been a continual inspiration to artists across the centuries.
