Theatre Royal Windsor is thrilled to announce that our postponed summer season of Hamlet and The Cherry Orchard directed by Sean Mathias, will be starting rehearsals this coming Monday 29th June.
Shakespeare’s Hamlet will star Sir Ian McKellen in the title role and will reopen Theatre Royal Windsor at a date to be announced. Hamlet will be followed by Martin Sherman’s adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard in which Sir Ian will play the role of Firs the elderly manservant.
The season will immediately precede the welcome return of our annual traditional pantomime – Cinderella, which this year will have a slightly later opening date.
Performance dates and tickets will be released as soon as we have government guidance on how and when we can safely reopen Theatre Royal Windsor.
As always, the safety and welfare of our audiences, performers and staff is of paramount importance and we will ensure we follow all government guidelines to be Covid-secure. As of course the actors will in the rehearsal room!
