They have been rehearsing for the play since early January.
The Joseph Wright's Shakespearean Soiree will also include an introduction by assistant head of museums Jonathan Wallis and a new digital animation by Darius Powell called Antigonos And The Bear, which was inspired by Wright's painting of the climatic scene in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.
A trust spokesman said: "Visitors will also be able to engage in discussion with the artists, rounding up a fascinating and exciting evening."
