A Kidsummer Night's Dream

Type
Suitability

A fun, fast-paced, family version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, it has all the comedy and confusion of the original play, but is considerably shorter (at about 50 minutes), with more audience interaction, songs, water pistols and none of the boring speeches.

However, within the informal theatrical style, occasional snippets of original text slip in, to allow the audience to enjoy some authentic Shakespearean language.

Review from a Canterbury audience member:

"My daughter (the last girl to do a roly-poly) LOVED LOVED the performance this morning... she's 4 and can't stop talking about it and singing the song! Well done team"
