Our Revels Now Are Ended ...

The 2013 tour of S4K’s The Tempest ended on Monday 25 March with a return visit to the Theatre Royal Wakefield to perform the shows that were lost to the snow back in January.

We were headline news the following morning live on Sky News.

It was not all snow-dodging though – we spent three weeks in the sunny Arabian Gulf touring Bahrain, Qatar, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Thanks are also due to our partners and colleagues at the Fairfield Halls in Croydon – where we rehearsed and opened the show back in January.

We launched our iProgramme app too – our innovative show programme for S4K’s The Tempest which can be downloaded free to Apple and Android devices. We’re certain to see more of these in the years to come.

As Prospero (sort of) said “We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and now it’s time for a well-earned sleep” – thanks to everyone who came to see us.

What they say about us:

S4K ROMEO: "Dear ALL THE ACTORS WHO ACTED IN ROMEO AND JULIET IN RADLETT CENTRE ON THE 7th OCTOBER. Me and my school came to see it it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo funny, the songs were great. I liked the one where Mercutio,Benvolio,and Romeo were trying to get into the Capulets' party and the one Romeo and Juliet sung in the party."
