Take a magical journey through 100 years of theatre-making in Stratford-upon-Avon with our new permanent exhibition. Experience the magic of Shakespeare on stage at our new family friendly exhibition. Full of treasures and jam packed with things to do, The Play’s The Thing reveals the secrets and stories from over 100 years of theatre making in Stratford-upon-Avon.
From the eternal love affair of Romeo and Juliet to Titus Andronicus’s blood, guts and gore, the exhibition lets you discover the ideas, inspiration and amazing craft within our work and take you behind-the-scenes to explore how we bring Shakespeare’s plays to life on stage.
Amazing objects will be on display from our archive and collection, including rarely seen props, exquisite costumes and original set designs. It will also be full of hands on activities and digital interactives to spark your imagination, including the chance to stand on a virtual stage, play with sound effects and try on famous costumes.
