Hit family show Muse Of Fire will return to Shakespeare’s Globe this summer following its success at the Bankside venue in 2013.
The promenade production, which plays from 18 to 27 August, takes audiences on a journey around the Globe and Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, inviting them to discover an Elizabethan hermit hiding under the stage, learn from a master of magic in a secret forest and have tea with the puppets that live in the abandoned library.
Suitable for children aged six to 11-years-old, the Family Arts Festival Award-winning story-based treasure hunt was originally staged to mark the 400th anniversary of the Globe burning down, but returns to offer even more intrepid families the chance to meet strange, magical characters and uncover vital clues to stop Muse destroying the iconic venue once again.
Muse Of Fire isn’t the only family friendly activity on offer at the Globe this summer, the alfresco theatre will also host a series of Story Days, providing dynamic retellings of the Bard’s famous plays for everyone aged six and older.
The 70-minute sessions coincide with the Globe’s summer productions – Antony And Cleopatra, Julius Caesar and Titus Andronicus – and take place on 14 June, 12 July and 2 August respectively.
