Shakespeare at the Farm

THE BARD returns to Bella Vista Farm on December 11 for a season of Shakespeare’s comedy, As You Like It, under the stars.

It will be the first-time audiences will have the opportunity to see a live performance at one of The Hills Shire Council venues since the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

Theatre Company, Sport for Jove, returns for their much-anticipated summer season, which will run from December 11 – 30 at the historic Bella Vista venue.

It’s a great opportunity to bring a picnic and Sport for Jove’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, As You Like It, underneath the stars, and amongst the venue’s historic buildings and rolling parklands.

Sport for Jove’s director Damien Ryan said he is happy to be back at the Farm, especially at a time when The Hills is re-opening to the rest of Sydney and beyond after vaccination rates were achieved.

“It’s an incredible place to host a play, so bring your picnics, bring your friends and join us in the Forest of Arden,” he said.

The Baulkham Hills local also encouraged residents to support the arts – one of the hardest hit sectors impacted by the pandemic.

“The pandemic has been unbelievably difficult and the arts has really taken a hit. If you can, get out this summer and see your favourite theatre companies. Actors, musicians, playwrights and story tellers cannot wait to see you again and commune with you,” he said.
