Storyhouse’s opening season is performed by a company of 26 actors, performing four plays, over four months, in two venues, 120 performances in total. You can see three of the shows – Alice in Wonderland, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Julius Caesar – in both Storyhouse and at Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre. All shows open in Storyhouse, before eventually transferring to the park in mid-summer – except our musical The Beggar’s Opera, which stays indoors.

So it’s your choice – of which venue, which month, indoors, or out. There’s no other theatre company in the country that stages a season quite like this. Whether you’re one of our army of loyal bookers, or just visiting Chester for the day, we look forward to making you extremely welcome.

And don’t forget – a child under 12 can go FREE with an adult (excluding Alice’s Half-Term Wonderland, 27 May – 4 Jun), and there are great discounts available for Under 26s. All of our tickets for the season are priced according to current demand, and you will get the best prices – and the best seats! – by booking as early as you can.
