Open Air Theatre returns to Walled Gardens of Cannington - Bridgwater & Taunton College

After a devastating year for the creative arts industries, Folksy Theatre are returning to the Walled Gardens of Cannington with two productions that are guaranteed to delight audiences.

It sounds like the plot for an episode of EastEnders, but The Tempest, is one of the Bard’s best loved comedies, featuring betrayal, revenge and the development of magic arts!

Prospero conjures a storm and torments the survivors of a shipwreck, including his treacherous brother, Antonio. Meanwhile Prospero’s slave, Caliban, plots to rid himself of his master but is thwarted by Prospero’s spirit-servant Ariel.

Ferdinand then falls in love with Prospero’s daughter Miranda. Will Prospero grant Ariel her freedom and be restored to his dukedom? Will Ferdinand and Miranda’s love overcome all?

Folksy Theatre’s wonderful production is filled with live music, colourful characters, enchantment and a little touch of magic.

For younger audiences, Little Red And The Big Bad Wolf is a delightful production filled with live music, puppetry and audience interaction.

Little Red sets off through the forest to visit Grandma but the journey won’t be easy, not with all these distractions!

The three pigs are building their new homes, Goldilocks is on the run from some bears and to top it all off, the Big Bad Wolf is out on the hunt for his dinner!

Can Little Red help her friends and still outsmart the hungry Wolf?


If you want to enjoy these two fun-filled productions, then get your ticket now for Folksy Theatre’s production of The Tempest and Little Red And The Big Bad Wolf at The Walled Gardens of Cannington.
