Twelfth Night on Deans Court lawns
WIMBORNE Drama returns to the lawns of Deans Court from 28th June to 1st July with it's production of Shakespeare's comedy Twelfth Night.
It all starts with a shipwreck, during which Viola and her brother Sebastian are separately rescued, each believing the other drowned.
Viola, alone in Illyria, disguises herself as a man, Cesario, and takes employment with the Duke Orsino. Before long Cesario is sent to woo the Duke's unwilling lover Olivia. But by this time Viola has fallen for the Duke, and Olivia falls for Cesario. Oops.

Olivia, in mourning, has invited her drunken uncle Toby Belch to live with her in her house, overseen by the pompous Malvolio and the lusty Maria. Toby turn has invited his drippy friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek to come and court Olivia.
This hilarious comedy is full of cross dressing, unrequited love, revenge and drunken revelry, and it includes some of Shakespeare's most beautiful love poetry and songs.
Michael Smith not only directs the play but plays Sir Toby Belch. The cast also includes
Jenn Singleton as Viola, Tracey Nicholls as Olivia, Paul Dodman as Orsino, Rob Cording as Sebastian, Judy Garrett as Maria, David Pile as Feste the clown, Graham Hawkins as Malvolio and Simon Jackson as Andrew Aguecheek.
Following the sell-out success of last year's The Importance of Being Earnest, an extra performance has been added on Sunday 1st July at 5pm. The Thursday to Saturday shows start at 7.30.
The audience can arrive an hour before curtain up with picnics, low-backed chairs or blankets. This year entry to the free car park is via Poole Road. The Deans Court Lane entrance from the town centre is only available for pedestrians.
The Quarter Jack's challenge
WIMBORNE Community Theatre is inviting local people to take part in an exclusive challenge next Saturday, to bring the past back to life at Allendale House
The dramatic debate The Quarter Jack's Challenge will be staged as part of the Wimborne Minster Through The Ages week-end on 23rd June at Allendale House in the centre of town.
The Quarter Jack (the man in the red coat who strikes the quarter hours on the famous Wimborne Minster clock) has summoned Charles Castlemain to host an historic gathering at his former home, Allendale House. Many of Wimborne's worthiest residents from the last 1,000 years have been invited, and they will compete for the title of Wimborne Worthy of Worthies.
Rumour has it that contenders include Minster church founder St Cuthburga and Henry VII's mother Lady Margaret Beaufort, as well as some surprise entrants.
Watch as they shake off the dust of ages and debate who has contributed most to the town over the last 2,000 years - and help judge who wins the WWW title.
It starts at 11am and is repeated at 2.30pm.
Dog-eat-dog sales contests
ARENA Theatre brings its latest production, David Mamet's Glengarry Glenross, to Bournemouth Little Theatre Club in Jameson Road from Thursday 21st to Saturday 23rd June.
Directed by Paul Nelson the cast is Sean Beaumont, Gerry Carroll, Barry Gunner, Declan Lees-Smith, Grant James Mace, Charlotte Peach and Gareth Richards
Glengarry Glen Ross is the prophetic story of four Chicago salesmen who work together selling undesirable real estate at inflated prices. The action takes place at the end of a month in which the bosses of the company, Mitch and Murray, have declared a sales contest ... the salesman who clears a certain high dollar amount will win a Cadillac, the next a set of steak knives, and the two salesmen who perform worst will be fired.
In the dog-eat-dog world of sales, who would you trust?
Performances start at 7.45pm.
