A WHOLE host of local businesses, and theatre loving individuals, have shown their support for the arts in Worcestershire, by sponsoring the city’s main producing theatre company, the Worcester Repertory Company, in one of its biggest productions of the year – its annual two-week outdoor production in the gardens of Worcester’s historic Commandery.

‘Worcester Rep at the Commandery’, is the Rep’s annual outdoor event and has become something of an institution since its first season back in 2007. Director Chris Jaeger, Artistic Director of the Worcester Repertory Company, said:

“We are, as always, really excited about this year’s Commandery performance. Worcester Rep at the Commandery has grown year on year since it launched back in 2007, but it could not go ahead without the fantastic support from local businesses and individuals who have sponsored the event, in many cases year in, year out.”

This year it is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous of mysteries, The Hound of the Baskervilles that is being given ‘the Rep treatment’, in a brand new spoof version written and directed by Jaeger and starring Rep Associate Director Ben Humphrey as Holmes. On Thursday, July 5, the sponsors were invited to the Commandery Gardens for a special sneak peek ahead of opening night.

The Hound of the Baskervilles runs until Sunday 22nd July. For more information or to book tickets please contact the Box Office on 01905 611427.
