During Summer 2013 we will once again be taking to the streets of Derry with our 'Shakespeare Trail'. Building on our work earlier in the year, we will perform in several areas in the city throughout the Summer. Here in Stage Beyond we love to invilve our audience, so if you're in Derry this summer, watch out! You might find yourself under the spell of three witches, or in the middle of a love scene between Romeo and Juliet!
You can catch our Shakespeare Trail every Monday in July and August at the following locations:
11am Foyleside Shopping Centre, Derry
11.30am The Craft Village, Shipquay Street, Derry
12.00pm The Guildhall Square, Derry

Our show is absolutely free and squeezes as much Shakespeare as we can in less than ten minutes! We hope to see you there! The Return of Colmcille
Stage Beyond were delighted to take part in the biggest pageant ever held here in Derry City! The Return of Colmcille celebrated the story and legacy of St Colmcille, patron saint of Derry. As well as street performances throughout the city there was a huge parade to show the Saint what he had missed as Derry gew in his absence. Stage Beyond members represented the tradition of greyhound racing in the city, dressing up as dog walkers, bookmakers and track assistants. Thousands gathered to watch this flamboyant and colourful procession which culminated in St Colmcille meeting his old enemy, the Loch Ness Monster, in the very middle of our own River Foyle!Click to Enlarge :: 1 2 3 4 5 ::
