Our highly anticipated third Academy production was a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. The show ran from 8 – 10 February with a talented group of pupils ranging from Year 7 – 13 who formed our cast, tech crew and on stage band.
On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers, from a far off land of Steam Punk wonder, find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule.
While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play.
Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue.
