TREAD The Boards Theatre Group is celebrating its quarter century this year, and how else to mark the special birthday but with a footie tribute to the Bard?!

Furthermore, the piece will be performed as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Open Stages Project.

“In its 25 year history Tread The Boards has not staged a play written by Shakespeare before,” said director Shirley Jones.

“We have set this comedy amid the world of celebrity footballers, their wives and girlfriends.”

Goal Scorer Claudio is a winner in the eyes of his manager, crowd, pundits and press. But can he also win the hand of a billionaire’s daughter?

All will be revealed when the comic romp goes live at Wolverton’s Madcap Theatre this Friday and Saturday night.

Performances are at 7.15pm and tickets are £8.50 and £6.50.

Expect vivacious displays of wit, and charming songs.
