Kicking off the evening with riotous laughter, one of the theatre studio’s directors Veronica del Cerro is set to presents a side-splitting one-act play: ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 17 Minutes or Less’ by Christine Harvey. Guests will join the hilarious cast, including Hannah Murray as Hermia, Beverley Stonehewer as Helena and PJ Lopez as Lysander for a whirlwind performance of love, mischief, and mayhem!

Next up is the talented Johnny G, a renowned artist, director, and musician, who will grace the stage with his infectious energy and captivating tunes. Joining him is Melissa Carver, renowned for her unforgettable performance as Eliza Doolittle in ‘My Fair Lady’ at the Salón Varietés theatre in Fuengirola. Together with Director John Gale, they will serenade the audience with timeless musical hits.

Adding to the excitement, the International Theatre Studio have reccruited the incredible choir, The Andalucia Performing Arts Society (T.A.P.A.S.), to perform an incredible musical set led by James Burn. Guests will be singing along to classic Lennon and McCartney tracks and more, as they showcase their harmonious prowess.

Organisers are expecting to welcome an audience of around 250 people throughout the evening. Guests are invited to bring their own picnics and drinks as organisers will not be selling food or drinks.

The park is open all day, so guests are also invited to enjoy the afternoon in the park and soak up the atmosphere before the show begins at 6pm.
