A Midsummer Night’s 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
Key Stage 2 and 3
Amount of Pupils:
Up to 140 in one day
All year – UK wide
Whole School activity
Suitable Key Stages 2 & 3
We can teach up to 4 groups in a day. The pupils perform the show with the splats teacher who acts as the narrator. This helps cement the whole play together and of course provides a cue for the pupils. The Splats director brings props, pieces of costume and music/sound effects.
The workshops are active, fun and a real challenge for all, created with physical theatre, movement, circus, dance and scripted character acting. As we learn the show and perform it in just one day, pupils are up on stage before they have any time to think about nerves. This gives all pupils an opportunity to shine in a very relaxed environment.

How our Shakespeare Show day works
One hour long shows with a cast of three (needs to be seen to be believed) followed by Q & A or workshops in a half day visit.
For full day after the show your students can create their own version with our company or visiting director to perform at the end of the day to family and friends.
OR have two shows with Shakespeare Double Bill
Our shows are also available as a double bill performance with either Midsummer Night’s Dream or Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth or The Tempest. Comedy and Tragedy in a day.
