A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The Drama Department and the cast of this year’s Whole School Play have been working hard to recreate one of Shakespeare’s most popular tales; A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The story tells of the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta, including the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals), who are controlled and manipulated by fairies.

“This is yet again one of the best casts I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I know that what they create is going to be spectacular!” (Mr Tew)
