Introduced by the Variety Kids Choir singing an original song, Blue Roo Theatre Company’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a unique re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic tale set in regional Australia after a catastrophic bush-fire. Audiences will be taken on a journey as the ghost of Shakespeare himself wakes to watch yet another adaptation and retelling of his prized story.
Predominantly following the original story of the fairies, Blue Roo has put together a delightful journey full of magic, music and at times, mayhem. This production is full of all of the heart, spirit and celebration Blue Roo Theatre is renowned for.
Accompanied by an orchestra consisting of leading local musicians, as well as, the debut of Blue Roo Theatre’s very own ensemble members playing musical instruments.
