The Core brings outdoor theatre to Solihull this August

The Core Theatre is bringing four unique outdoor performances to Solihull’s Brueton Park during August and tickets are on sale now. Gather up your friends and family, pack a picnic, and bring along your own seat or blanket to enjoy some fantastic theatre shows performed in a scenic lakeside setting. 

The Core outdoor theatre programme launches with Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers’, on Thursday 1 August at 6pm. Set in picturesque Venice, this light-hearted operetta will whisk you away to a world of blissful romance, barbed satire and comedic chaos.

Filled with live music, puppetry, audience interaction and madness, ‘Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets’ is the perfect treat for the whole family. Prepare to be surprised, thrilled and tickled pink by Angelica Sprocket’s never-ending pockets, and the marvellous things she keeps in them, on Saturday 10 August at 5pm.

On Tuesday 13 August at 6pm, one of the UK’s best-loved touring theatre companies, Oddsocks Productions, perform ‘Julius Caesar’ in their uniquely entertaining and informative style. Expect the tearing of togas, the swishing of roman swords, some preposterous puppetry and the biggest battle scene five actors have ever created!

‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ then comes to Brueton Park on Thursday 22 August at 6pm. When two Victorian gentlemen assume the name of ‘Earnest’ to win the affections of two ladies determined to marry a man of that name, the scene is set for Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy of manners and triviality.
