A Little Pit Bigger

Wells Little Theatre has started a fundraising campaign for theatre renovations beginning with our A Little Pit Bigger project to develop our orchestra pit into something musicians can actually use! To do this we have set up a fundraising website on Indiegogo so those who wish to support us with their generosity can donate - you can also find out details of the project there and see how we are getting on and the perks of supporting us! We are not just sitting back and hoping money will appear (though it would be nice!) - the society is putting on a host of events designed to raise money which will be publicised on this website, facebook and Twitter. So please follow us and help us provide quality entertainment and a valuable community resource for Wells and the surrounding area and hopefully enjoy the events we put on as well!

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Bristol Old Vic Theatre School production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an ageless celebration of love consummated and fertile imaginings.
Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Establishment tries to intervene, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies.
Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.

Opens on Tuesday, 7 June 2016 and closes on Tuesday, 7 June 2016.

Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night, or, What You Will is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written around 1601–02 as a Twelfth Night's entertainment for the close of the Christmas season.
The play centers on the twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. It focuses on the Countess Olivia falling in love with Viola (who is disguised as a boy), and Sebastian in turn falling in love with Olivia.
The play expanded on the musical interludes and riotous disorder expected of the occasion, with plot elements drawn from the short story "Of Apollonius and Silla" by Barnabe Rich, based on a story by Matteo Bandello.
The first recorded performance was on 2 February 1602, at Candlemas, the formal end of Christmastide in the year's calendar.

Opens on Wednesday, 21 September 2016 and closes on Saturday, 24 September 2016.
