WELLS Theatre Festival will feature a community production of As You Like It on the South Lawn of the Bishop's Palace Gardens.

Along with the community production, the festival will be presenting a programme of theatre, including children’s theatre, opera and dance over the weekend of July 6-9.

Highlights include And Then They Came for Me, a show about Eva Scholls, an Auschwitz survivor and friend to Anne Frank.

Jonathan Guy Lewis brings his West End/Broadway hit one-man show I Found My Horn back to the festival, exploring the transforming power of music.

Ros Johnson, festival artistic director, said: "There is something for everyone at this year’s festival, theatre, dance and shows for children and all the family.

"We are also very excited to welcome Opera in a Box with Mozart’s outrageous comedy Don Giovanni, a really great, accessible show for a first experience of opera.

"Meanwhile we are having an absolute ball rehearsing As You Like It in the beautiful Bishop's Palace Gardens. What a perfect backdrop for our hilarious take on Shakespeare’s comedy of love and mistaken identity."

Festival favourites Scratchworks Theatre Company present The Grimm Sisters a marvellous mix of storytelling, comedy & live music . Also returning by popular demand are Pirate Taxi with their aerial acrobatics on the Cathedral Green.
