Thame Players returned to the Elms last week to perfom Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing in the open air.

With their theatre now closed for the summer, Thame 
Players tackled the open-air and braved the temperamental weather to bring five 
performances of one of the Bard’s finest comedies to the Elms- a delightful historical setting which allowed audience members to indulge in homemade food provided by local catering companies Kirsty’s Kitchen and Made by Mums.

The company retained the play’s Edwardian era, but director David Bright blended it with Charleston dancing and 1920s jazz for a unique, quirky twist.

Thame residents were urged to wear yellow to the event as part of a publicity stunt organised by the Elms Petition Group to raise awareness of what will be lost if plans go ahead to develop the grounds into a housing estate.

Thame Players - who will be celebrating 70 years as an amateur theatre group this autumn - will be back in the theatre this September with their interpretation of Ronald Harwood’s Quarter.
