Congratulations to Miss Saggers and the cast of A Midsummer Night's Dream for the most wonderful performances.
The stage was set outside on the school field amongst the trees using the elevation of "tree tops". Many parents, staff and visitors enjoyed the perfect summer's weather and a lazy picnic whilst watching the performances on two evenings.
There were some very strong performances as the story unfolded:
Thesus wants his daughter Hermia to marry an Athenian nobleman named Demetrius, she refuses and flees into the woods with her true love, Lysander.
Helena, determined to win Demetrius' love, tells him about Hermia's plan to elope with Lysander and he goes looking for Hermia in the woods. Meanwhile, Oberon quarrels with his wife Titania, the Fair Queen. Oberon sends the mischievous Puck to sprinkle a love postion on Titania.
On his way, Puck decides to have some fun and cast a spell on Lysander and Demetrius. Puck's spell causes both Lysander and Demetrius to fall for Helena. A betrayed Hermia chases Helena while the men fight. Under the influence of the love potion, Titania falls for Nick Bottom, an actor with a donkey's head. Chaos ensues.
Will the course of true love ever run smooth for our heroes?
