A Midsummer Nights Dream
by William Shakespeare
Adapted by Leigh Farrant
“A great introduction to the inventiveness of Shakespeare. Watch your pupils create the Midsummer Night’s madness of Oberon, Titania, Puck and the fairies causing chaos with their magical mischief on the humans. What fools these mortals be.“

How A Midsummer Night Dream Play works
Our A Midsummer Nights Dream day begins with an assembly to introduce the pupils and teachers to the play and the characters they will be playing.
One class works with the splats teacher at a time to learn their scene. The play is divided into 4 scenes so 4 classes can take part or 2 classes can learn 2 scenes each.
Props and sets
The other groups make props and set for the show and then come and work on their scene. We supply a full teaching pack to help guide this.
At the end of the day all the classes come together to perform the show. The splats teacher acts as narrator which helps to guide the play along.
The pupils can act as their own audience as three of the scenes will be new to them but also please invite parents and other classes to watch as it is a great community event.
