Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at Hornsey Town Hall

CROUCH END PLAYERS PRESENT: 
Shakespeare’s
 Twelfth Night
Hornsey Town Hall, N8                           January 27-30 2016

Following on from the huge success of 2014’s "As You Like It" in Priory Park, the Crouch End Players revisit their talent for Shakespeare with this production of much-loved comedy, Twelfth Night.

Viola and her twin, Sebastian, are shipwrecked in a strange land. Believing her brother to be dead, Viola dresses as a boy to join the opulent court of the Count Orsino and is quickly drawn in to the courtships, plots and japes of the great ones of Illyria. 

The beautiful Hornsey Town Hall, at the heart of Crouch End, will be the setting for this very special production, which will run from Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th January 2016. 

Tickets are £12 (incl. booking fee) and are available now from the Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre website:  Book Tickets

EARLY BIRD Tickets at £10 are available for the Wednesday night performance.

Crouch End Festival 2015

"The UK's largest community festival"  Crouch End Festival 2015  is back with a bang, running from June 5th to 14th.
Once more the Crouch End Players  ("Festival Favourites"!)  take the opportunity to explore, devise and create diverse productions in various venues throughout our community, free of charge.

This year we have an exciting and varied programme with something for everyone on offer.

All our festival productions have an exciting "crime & punishment" theme!

There's an interactive whodunnit, an immersive short film, some chilling radio plays and, for our younger audiences, a charming story about a naughty scarecrow.

Admission to all performances is free as a thank-you for all your support throughout the rest of the year but please remember to book your places by clicking on the links below the images. Some of these shows will certainly sell-out in advance in limited-capacity venues, and we hate to disappoint!
