* While the holidays meander on and the theatres gear up for their big autumn programmes, there is still lots to see and do before the summer is over.

A must see is 4x4 Ephemeral Architectures at Oxford Playhouse on Wednesday, a wondrous collaboration between Royal Ballet dancers and world-class jugglers.

Pulsing rhythms, jaw-dropping choreography and a good dose of humour, make this a truly original and inspiring show.

Direct from Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this breathtaking collaboration between the two seemingly different worlds of ballet and juggling is breath-taking.

* If you haven’t seen Creation’s summer season of As You Like It in the beautiful gardens and lawns of Lady Margaret Hall because of the rain, fear not because Shakespeare’s pastoral romantic comedy, has a full wet weather contingency plan.

Which means you can still enjoy the quirky and fun show, with its wrestling match, love notes on trees and a healthy amount of boys falling in love with girls dressed as boys, regardless of the weather.

* An aerial extravaganza awaits you next Thursday at Oxford Playhouse.

STRIKE! is directed by rising star Keziah Serreau and devised by highly skilled performers using innovative aerial structures, lively humour and a Kafka-esque setting to blur boundaries between circus and theatre.

Expect daredevil stunts with a fiery tale of uprising as the cast of five play office workers, buried (quite literally) under an ever-increasing workload. But when they decide they aren’t going to take it anymore, they bend rules- and their bodies- to escape.

* RicNic Oxford returns to Pegasus with the musical Into The Woods until Saturday which intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them beyond the ‘happily ever after’ to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

Following sell-out performances of South Pacific, West Side Story and Guys ‘n’ Dolls, this talented company of local young people promises another show filled with memorable songs, larger-than-life characters, and guaranteed fun for the whole family.
