RSC Dream Team Festival
Are you ready for an unforgettable Midsummer adventure?
For the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the Royal Shakespeare Company, amateur companies, theatres and schools across the UK unite to perform the nation’s favourite play as never before.
Join Hull Truck Theatre for the RSC Dream Team 2016 festival – a celebration of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with unique productions from local schools and Hull Truck Youth Theatre.
On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers 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 in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.
The festival schedule is as follows:
Wednesday 8 June, 6pm – 9pm
Kingswood Academy, Ganton School and Hull Truck Youth Theatre
Thursday 9 June, 6pm – 9pm
Frederick Holmes School, St Thomas More Roman Catholic Primary School and St Mary’s College
