What if you could travel back in time? What would you see and who would you meet? Royal Botanical Gardens, in association with The Players’ Guild of Hamilton, presents The Spirits of Paradise. Directed by David Dayler, this two-hour moving theatre experience will help you understand how the local landscape has changed over the last two centuries through the eyes of the people who have influenced its history.

Time-ticketed performances will start at 5:15 p.m., 5:45 p.m., 6:15 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 7:15 p.m. sharp at the Cherry Hill tent in Hendrie Park. Participants must purchase a ticket in advance as numbers are limited at each performance. Participants should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start time.

What to expect:

This outdoor theatre experience takes place within Hendrie Park, but does require some walking along natural packed-earth trail. Over two hours, participants will need to walk approximately 2 kilometres (including some stairs and climbing a 50 metre-long hill) and stand for 12 performances lasting five minutes each. Not recommended for those with mobility concerns, or for children under the age of 8.

Performances take place light rain or shine. Please dress appropriately for the weather.

*Animals are not permitted to attend this event (with the exception of service animals)

Pre-Registration Required: $20.00 (+ service fees + HST) each. (Members 10% off) Maximum 25 per show.
