Multi award winning Rogue Theatre returns to the woods this August with their star entangled woodland crown of the summer season; the premier opening of their magic book of brand new wild and fantastical tales..
“Immersive theatre at its best” Wild Woodland Summer Ball is Rogue’s free-spirited celebration of wildness, set in one of Cornwall’s breathtaking landscapes of wonder; Tehidy Woods, North Cliffs.
Wild Woodland Summer Ball blends thrilling stories with an enchanting atmosphere in a show at the wild heart of the woods.
So join us for a while, be transported to another realm, waltz along the woodland path, take your imagination for a dance.
Wild Woodland Summer Ball is a unique woodland adventure into a wondrous world.
With stories for boys, girls and grown-ups who hear the call of the wild.
Follow the King of the Woods on the paths of your imagination, and meet Moon, the Queen of the Sky as they open the book of Fae on a brand new page.
There will be enchanting live music, thrilling stories, otherworldly performance, explosive acrobatics, fire, dancing, free face painting, and the chance to create a wild and wonderful woodland craft decoration.
Forest creature costumes, faerie Dress, otherworld outfits, party frocks, wild life masks, funny hats, forest finery, frippery, feathers and fancy hairdos are encouraged though not essential. (Grown ups as well as children)

Rogue is always delighted to host all audience members at all shows though over the years we have been asked by some with wilder younger family members ( we have a couple ourselves! ) if we would consider adding “Wilder Shows” to our runs.
We have decided to pilot this idea this summer and have added 2 special “Wilder Woodland Summer Ball” shows, slightly shorter, on the two Saturday mornings. These 'wilder shows' are specifically for those who would feel more relaxed in the company of others who have wilder ones too !
