 Attic Door Productions is the theatrical arm of the award winning team at Little Gargoyle Ltd., who have already blazed a trail in the World of Murder Mysteries with their nights of dinner entertainment over at After Dark Murder Mystery. Their education department is making history in the world of
Wicked Workshops and at Attic Door they concentrate on staging exciting and innovative theatre for stage and beyond.

Previously, the team at Little Gargoyle has sold out the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 3 years in a row, won the best comedy show at Buxton Fringe (in 2010) and best International show at Hollywood Fringe (2011) and now they're back for more, with a production of Wind in the Willows also in the works for Summer 2016.

Bard By the Beach, running 22nd - 24th April 2016, will mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. Organised by Little Gargoyle Ltd., it's the very first Morecambe Shakespeare Festival celebrating the Bard's life and works and will include theatre, music, poetry, song, dance, art and a historical rennaisance market.

Performers and artists - who include the Rose Company, Regent Park Studios and The Rubbish Shakespeare Company as well as Attic Door Productions - will converge by the beach and bring the world's most famous playwright's work to life in a variety of exciting projects over a weekend full of events for all the family.

There will be two days with the opportunity to audition for The Tempest: Tuesday 19th January 7.00pm - 9.00pm and Sunday 24th January 2.00pm - 4.00pm
