S4K's A Midsummer Night's Dream

Fairies and fun, royalty and romance, magic and misunderstandings: S4K's A Midsummer Night's Dream has them all. The Bard's comedy gets a musical transformation from Shakespeare 4 Kidz, whose dazzling version has proved a huge hit every time it has toured.

Simply a Dream come true...

Who can resist the story of a Duke marrying his Amazonian queen, two sets of lovers who elope into the woods where the audience finds Bottom and his funny friends rehearsing a play, feuding fairies and a naughty sprite called Puck, whose mismanaged magic causes no end of merriment?

It's enchanting entertainment for people of all ages because the most famous lines are woven into easy-to-understand modern language. Simply a dream come true.

"Hundreds of children in a packed audience loved every minute of this musical adaptation of Shakespeare's amusing play..."
