The Gangs Of New York, The Importance Of Being Earnest and The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz are the three headline shows for this year's Grosvenor Park Open Air Summer Season from Chester Storyhouse.

Running from mid-July until the end of August, the season also features stand-up comedy, open-air cinema, arts and crafts, live music, street food and bars.

Opening the season (July 19-August 31) is a new adaptation of The Gangs of New York, based on the iconic book by Herbert Asbury. Adapted by award-winning writer Kieran Lynn, it features stories from the wicked and notorious Five Points neighbourhood in lower Manhattan. 

Oscar Wilde's classic comedy The Importance of Being Earnest runs August 9-September 1 and for family audiences The Wonderful Wizard of Oz walkabout plays from July 27-August 22.

Moonlight Flicks open-air cinema features Barbie, Anyone But You, Wonka, Dirty Dancing, Pulp Fiction and more. There will also be comedy and murder mystery nights and storytelling for young families. 

Creative director at Storyhouse Suzie Henderson said: "We're absolutely thrilled to present our summer line-up for Grosvenor Park. With an eclectic mix of performances and events, we're eager to welcome audiences back to immerse themselves in the enchanting world of live entertainment against the picturesque backdrop of the park."
