Attingham will be setting the stage for an outdoor theatre performance of ‘War of the Worlds’ on the evening of Saturday 18 June.
Set against a backdrop of the regency mansion, the critically acclaimed Pantaloons will invade the stage in this funny yet faithful open-air adaptation of the H. G. Wells science fiction novel.
They use musical instruments, puppetry and enthusiasm to recreate deadly heat-rays, giant fighting-machines, squidgy tentacled Martians and interplanetary warfare on an epic scale.
Rebekah Taylor, Attingham Senior Programming and Partnerships Officer said:
“The Pantaloons are always popular at Attingham and we are looking forward to their return this June. Their new adaption of War of the Worlds will take the audience on a sci-fi adventure in the unique setting of Attingham Park.”
The War of the Worlds production will take to the stage at Attingham on Saturday 18 June at 7.00pm. Tickets cost £15.00 for an adult and £10.00 for a child. They can be purchased via the website at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/attingham-park/whats-on
The War of the Worlds outdoor theatre production is the start of a summer of fun at Attingham Park. Outdoor theatre performances are also lined up for July and August, plus the outdoor cinema will be returning later in the year.
