Youth to perform modern take on a Shakespearean classic

The Rose Youth Theatre will present A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Geoff Bamber on Saturday July 21st 2018.

They will be performing at 2.30pm and 7.00pm at Edge Hill’s Rose Theatre and if previous performances are to go by, then this should be another show not to miss.

The cast will be showing how the preparations are under way for the high-profile wedding of Theseus, Duke of Athens, and his bride the Warrior Queen Hippolyta. However the wedding planner Sebastian finds that he has more problems with the guests than the happy couple, including a rift in the Underworld, in-fighting among the entertainers, and a mischievous sprite to contend with.

The Rose Youth Theatre senior members present a fun-loving, modern English version of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ featuring a few musical twists with some hilarious moments. This new generation performance is based on the classical Shakespearean play with all the much loved characters but with a fresh, contemporary approach. A unique introduction to William Shakespeare and a family performance that is not to be missed!

Suitable for everyone aged 5 years and over
