A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM:

Bronagh, Enniskillen Castle:
I attended the play myself and it was superb. Your actors performed it brilliantly. We were all mesmerised! Lots of people came up to me after the show to say how fantastic it had been and how much they had enjoyed it.

Krystyna, Wakehurst:
Such a funny, human, innovative, splendid performance... Thank you for the midsummer magic! John, Newstead Abbey: The performances were superb - professional, engaging and witty. The audience was enthralled and there was even timely participation from the peacocks and geese! It was a wonderful evening and a welcome escape from all of the worries of modern life.

Carol, Quarry Bank:
Entertaining and professional. The best performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream I have ever seen.


     
 

CRANFORD:

Kazi, Fota House:
Thank you so much Chapterhouse for such an amazing evening at Cranford! Every year is amazing but this time the acting was extra spectacular! We're so lucky you come to visit us!

Sara, Lytham Hall:
Was lucky enough to see Cranford on Sunday at Lytham Hall. Even though the heavens were open throughout it didn’t dampen the performance. Everyone played their parts well and it was an enchanting adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel; I would highly recommend to everyone.

Morna, Theatre at the Mill:
I've seen Chapterhouse productions at this venue many times over the last few years and this has to be one of their best. It was one of the most enjoyable outdoor theatre events I've been to.


     
 

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE:

Jo, Epworth Old Rectory:
The cast were excellent and provided numerous amusing moments. This was the first outdoor event I have attended and the setting was ideal. I thought the flexibility of the cast and the way most of them played more than one role was very good.

Abi, Gloucester Cathedral:
Magical evening, wonderfully put together, incredibly talented actors playing so many different parts and switching between roles effortlessly.

Sarah, Harewood House:
It was our first time at such an event and we loved it! The weather was amazing, the play was awesome and the actors were out of this world.


     
 

THE SECRET GARDEN:

Neil, Aberglasney Gardens:
Absolutely stunning performance. Just a little bit magical. Thank you.

Caroline, Hampton Court Castle:
The cast were engaging and the story well told, it was a lovely evening. My seven-year-old daughter was totally entranced from start to finish.

Jessica, Harewood House:
It would be impossible not to love the performance. The cast really brought the story to life in an accessible way. It was beautiful to see my daughter's spellbound little face.

Alex, Wentworth Woodhouse:
A truly wonderful evening watching your version of one of my favourite childhood books. Working at the Crucible and Lyceum I'm always impressed with smaller scale theatre making shows.


     
 

TREASURE ISLAND:

Lyn, Field Place Manor House:
My husband and I took three of my grandchildren to your production of Treasure Island last night. It was brilliant. The cast were amazing, the singing was great and their interactions with the audience very funny and appropriate for all ages.

Natalie, Quarry Bank:
I really enjoyed Treasure Island - lots of fun and really well put together. Thank you!

Siobhan, Hoghton Tower:
Absolutely loved it - it made us laugh out loud in glorious surroundings.


     
 

WUTHERING HEIGHTS:

Leigh, Emo Court Walled Garden:
The first time I’ve seen open theatre and it was spellbinding. What a venue to hold such a play as Wuthering Heights in. Hats off to cast and crew, it was all round fab.

Jodie, Erddig Hall:
Seriously, Wuthering Heights was genuinely one of the greatest things I've ever seen in my entire life. The acting was phenomenal and the end had me sobbing. Brilliant.

Siobhan, Hilton Park:
Utterly overwhelmed by Wuthering Heights in Hilton House this evening. My sister and I were in tears at the end. Intense, emotional and beautifully acted. Cannot thank you enough.

Tony, Markree Castle:
I am so glad I went - the production was fantastic and the performers were exceptional. A wonderful evening.
