This summer Brownsea Open Air Theatre present Romeo and Juliet
The scene is set – a peaceful Sunday morning in Verona, Italy, but the two leading families – the Montagues and Capulets - are poised for yet another fight.
Caught up in this long-running feud are Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. Will they overcome the prejudices of their parents and fall in love across the divide?
This summer, Brownsea Open Air Theatre present this simple story of two young people, in a dream ‘bubble of love’ who set their faces against the hatred and division of their elders and by their deaths bring harmony to their divided world.
Tickets are £28 each and as always this will include the return boat fare from Poole Quay with no additional landing fees to pay. There will be a difference in charges for those who order online as we have a new ticketing system in place managed in partnership with BH Live Tickets (the box office for Bournemouth Pavilion and Bournemouth International Centre).
For further information please see the ticket information section below.

* Due to performances being held in the open air and on an island, BOAT has traditionally allowed for a contingency performance should the scheduled performance be cancelled. A condition of sale is that it is each ticket holder’s responsibility to be available for the contingency date and there are no refunds if the scheduled performance is cancelled and the ticket holder is unable to attend the contingency date.
Managed in partnership with
There is a new ticketing system in place for 2020. Following demand this includes a new online ticketing system where patrons are now able to select their actual seats from the auditorium seating plan. This system will be managed in partnership with BH Live Tickets (the box office for Bournemouth Pavilion and Bournemouth International Centre) – although the patron will still access the system online via the BOAT website as before.
Tickets are £28 each and as always this includes the return boat fare from Poole Quay with no additional landing fees to pay. There will be a difference in charges for those who order online. IN THE PAST there was an online set charge for each transaction (purchase) plus an admin charge for each ticket – BUT IN THE NEW SYSTEM there will be ONE set charge of £3 to cover admin costs, and payment of this will include BH Live Tickets posting the tickets to the customer. This means one flat admin charge whether you buy one ticket or twenty tickets in any transaction!
To avoid paying any admin charge there is also the option of going to Bournemouth Pavilion in person and paying for and collecting the tickets on site with NO admin charge.
Patrons wishing to book by phone are able to do so by calling BH Live Tickets on 0300 5000595
Note that BH Live Tickets do NOT accept cheques – so any customers wishing to purchase by cheque (payable to BOAT) can still do so via the BOAT Box Office, posting to BOAT, PO Box 338, Poole, BH17 7ZT. In those cases there is only an admin charge of £1 unless a SAE is sent in with the ticket order, in which case the charge is waived.
Patrons who order by post can request specific seats but these can not be guaranteed – BOAT will do it’s best to allocate seats as close to those requested.
Not to be missed!
Engaging, witty, and a joy to watch
Brownsea Open Air Theatre always put on a great show
