Sizzling Summer Fun with Miracle Theatre

Thu 4 Jul 2019

It's almost the summer holidays, which means we are eagerly anticipating Miracle Theatre's return to Dorset with their annual trio of open-air performances for all the family to enjoy.

This year is extra special as Miracle are celebrating their 40th birthday! The company have been touring original, inventive, comic theatre across Cornwall and the UK since 1979 and Artsreach has been delighted to work with Miracle for many years to bring their performances to deepest rural Dorset. Recent Miracle open-air productions you may have seen in the county include Waiting for Godot (2013) and The Third Policeman (2017).

To mark their 40th anniversary, this year Miracle present a special rollicking musical adventure titled A Perfect World. Written by Bill Scott and with original live music by Tom Adams, this brand new, action-packed and comical play follows a feisty young woman named Ruth Hopkiss as she ventures into a Boy's Own world of undiscovered jungles, treasure maps, campfires and penknives. 

Lively, inventive and popular, Miracle Theatre's work gives lie to the idea that theatre is a Metropolitan activity

The Guardian

Join Ruth as she leads her team of quarrelsome explorers into a bountiful paradise, whose inhabitants seem entirely peaceful, productive and fulfilled. But is this tranquil place the best of all possible worlds? Or is it all too good to be true?

Set amongst the beautiful surroundings of Springhead Trust Gardens, Higher Orchard in Sandford Orcas, and Kimmeridge Bay, pack your picnics, grab your friends and family and settle in for an unforgettable summer evening.
