As You Like It - "A triumph"

Theatre in Priory Park

 This summer the Crouch End Players realised a long-held dream - to create outdoor theatre in the heart of our neighbourhood, and to produce our first ever Shakespeare play.







Our performances were sold out, and we even managed to keep dry!









We are still glowing from the excitement, adrenaline, anxiety, exhaustion and utter joy of having done it. It was a magical experience for us all.




The Stage
Taking our final bow

We are  now all missing the temporary home we created on the bowling green in Priory Park, where many of us spent nights camping out, protecting the set from Hurricane Bertha!








We are eternally grateful to all those who helped in so many ways, without whom we could not have staged this production.





Our sincere gratitude  goes  to everyone who supported us - who got the ball rolling by pledging to our Crowd-funder campaign, to those who helped us publicise the event, volunteered on site, sold tickets, bought tickets and generally helped us to make it happen. 
We appreciate it.
 
The interval





Thanks also to the Ham and High for such a glowing review  read review











So, despite the weather, we end the summer on a high note, looking forward to planning our next productions!
