A Midsummer Night’s Dream
July 3, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - July 8, 2017 @ 8:00 pm
Local company Shakespeare Live, in their 29th year of outdoor shows,
have a new venue at Cleeve House, Seend, SN12 6PG, where their 366
seater tiered and covered stand will face a sylvan background perfect
for the fantastic, romantic and funny antics of fairies and humans,
including, of course, the famous workman Bottom, unwittingly
transformed by mischievous Puck into a donkey in order to woo the
enchanted and enchanting Queen of the Fairies.
As the light fades on a summer’s evening, the top quality lighting
takes over, and with sound, costume and production values all at the
highest level, you can be sure of great entertainment. And if the
weather is less than perfect, the play goes on, even if the actors do
sometimes get wet!
Whilst the play is the centre piece, the event also offers the chance
to picnic before every show, and to enjoy great extra entertainment on
the Saturday Gala Night.
Ticket prices range from £5 – £20 and can be bought by calling the box office
on 07780 938107.
