As we are expecting a rather voluminous crowd in the outdoors, we do request that you wear attire suitable for the meteorological conditions – we will provide seating. It shall be an extraordinary family gathering, and we should not consider it complete without your presence.

From the creators of The HandleBards comes a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the rule book and celebrating silliness. With Slapstick Picnic, you can have your cake and eat it.

This is an outside event but the performance will be inside if there is bad weather
