The Tower on Tour in Paris
The 2012 tour to the Jardin Shakespeare with A Midsummer Night's Dream.
(Pictures of the show itself are here.)
2012 marked our 21st expedition to Paris and the second time we had presented A Midsummer Night's Dream
in the open-air
theatre in the Bois de Boulogne.
This year we again broke records with over 2000 people seeing the show. An enthusistic and talented cast gave cracking performances - and were given great support
by the crew and FOH teams. The weather was generally grey and miserable, with one performance touch-and-go because of a heavy downpour shortly before curtain-up.
But the week ended on a glorious summer day with a capacity crowd for the final performance.
As usual, the Company was not slow in seeking out the attactions of Paris, soaking up the atmosphere, sights, bars and restaurants, with a bit of
sightseeing thrown in.
