A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
‘Dream’ the BLT Youth Theatre’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Directed by Helen Dunlea, Tunde Euba and Joel Trill.
‘Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind;
And therefore is wing’d cupid painted blind.’
Affections can be fleeting and intertwined, love can be complicated and irrational, messages can be misread or mischievously interpreted, people fall out and are reconciled. When day dawns the shadows disappear and all seems as a dream. Not a description of social networking, but themes that Shakespeare wove into his timeless and magical comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Members of the BLT Youth Theatre have been working hard on their mime and freeze-framing, their movement , Shakespearean language, improvisation and ensemble work and will be using all these skills to present ‘Dream’ a concentrated and dynamic version of this timeless play.
Our forest will be full of magic, confusion and music. Our fairies won’t flit , they may sulk and stomp. The story bounces at a fast and furious pace, while the comedy, the poetry and the visions unfurl. We will make you laugh and your pulse race! Please come along and support the Youth Theatre on July 25th, 26th and 27th at 19:45 in the main theatre.
