Immersion Theatre Company is hoping to hook audiences of all ages this summer by touring two fantastic open-air productions.
Adults will enjoy Oscar Wilde’s finest sparkling comedy, The Importance Of Being Earnest, while families can take a trip to Neverland with the rollicking fantasy yarn, Peter Pan.
Not willing to let the grass grow under their feet, Immersion has today announced their summer programme despite the company still being out on a 37-venue, sell-out, tour of The Jungle Book.
Both productions will be directed by Immersion Theatre’s artistic director, James Tobias who said: “I am incredibly excited to continue expanding Immersion’s portfolio of work.
“Peter Pan is a 41-venue tour and is shaping up to be another larger-than-life summer treat for families of all ages.
“It will complete with all the ingredients that make an Immersion show such a uniting and, above all, fun family experience.
“Earnest is our first open-air classic and, as such, is a smaller, 16-venue, tour, a number we are looking to increase considerably in 2019.
“The show also holds a very special place in my heart as it was the first title Immersion produced so I can’t wait to re-visit this show so many years on”
The new musical adaptation of JM Barrie’s Peter Pan will see Tobias reunite with composer Robert Gathercole once again.
The pair have previously worked on a number of Immersion shows including Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, Wind in the Willows and The Jungle Book.
The second tour, going out at the same time as Pan, sees Immersion return to it’s roots with the Oscar Wilde comedy classic, The Importance.
Immersion Theatre is an award-nominated production and general management company focusing primarily on family theatre, which was established in 2010 by producers and Stage One alumni, James Tobias and Rochelle Parry.
Previous work includes the 2017 UK tour of Our House (nominated for three What’s on Stage Awards), The Wizard of Oz, Robin Hood, The Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland, Journey’s End, Rapunzel, Romeo & Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
