MACBETH CAST ANNOUNCED FOR LYTHAM HALL
London-based actor Ronnie Yorke who trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts will play the lead in the production of Macbeth which is the first of the six plays in the 2021 open air theatre season at Lytham Hall.
Artistic director Peter Stickney has announced the seven-strong cast of The Lord Chamberlain's Men who will be making their debut at the Hall on Friday 18 June at 7.00 pm
Ronnie Yorke is happy to face up to the challenge of one of Shakespeare’s most demanding dramas.
“It’s fantastic to be returning to work with TLCM for a second tour and a real privilege to be playing Macbeth, such a famous and challenging role. It will be a delight for us to bring live theatre back to our audiences around the country after so many months.”
The summer tour will open at Salisbury Cathedral Close on Friday 4 June and go onto 65 performances at 59 venues in 93 days. The company will come to Lytham Hall directly after Harewood House, whilst other venues include Shrewsbury Castle, Glastonbury Abbey, Knebworth House and Chatsworth.
Peter Stickney believes that the Lytham audience is in for a treat.
“We are really looking forward to our first visit to Lytham Hall. Macbeth is a gripping and popular play and I am very pleased, but not surprised, to hear that tickets are selling so well. The company of seven actors are in the middle of intensive rehearsals at our new base in Essex and things are shaping up very promisingly indeed.”
