Every summer, you can experience a beautiful and well-produced musical performance in the enchanting setting of the lovely park at Palsgsaard Manor
Every summer, Palsgaard Sommerspil invites everyone to enjoy a musical on Denmark's most beautiful outdoor stage in Palsgaard Slotspark. Since 1972, a new annual performance has been held on a regular basis which has attracted many guests from all over the country. Palsgaard Sommerspil is an amateur theatre association and the participants are volunteers. However, the set-up is quite professional and the 200 volunteers help to create an impressive setting and unforgettable experiences for the many spectators.
In 2021, you can enjoy the family-friendly and enchanting fairy tale, The Wizard Of Oz. Visit the magical land of Oz for a day and immerse yourself in a dream world as Dorothy travels through an enchanted, exciting and dangerous world.
The Wizard of Oz was originally scheduled to be performed in 2020 but has been postponed to 2021 due to covid-19.
Part of the experience of Palsgaard Sommerspil is sitting in the cosy surroundings of the park. You can book a picnic when you buy your ticket and have it handed to you on arrival. The picnic consists of a delicious tapas plate or a salad and can be enjoyed on a blanket on the lawn or in the large dining tent.
You can also visit the stall, Café Wohlert, where you can buy sausages, beverages, wine, ice cream, sweets, coffee and tea.
You are, of course, also welcome to bring your own picnic.
Palsgaard Manor is a manor house with an exciting history dating back to the 13th century. The beautiful, three-winged castle is surrounded by one of the country's largest manor parks, totalling all of 21 hectares. The park is extremely well-maintained and attention is paid to every detail. You can find many rare trees and plants that are signposted so you can read what type they are. There are six smaller lakes, fine sculptures and idyllic old, yellow-washed, half-timbered buildings.
The outdoor stage where performances take place today is located in the middle of the park.
On the Palsgaard Sommerspil website, you can see how to book tickets. This is also where you can get a clearer idea of performances and prices.
