A Midsummer Night’s Disaster
St Calamity’s School is staging a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Unfortunately, all does not go according to plan. There are costume failures, prop and set disasters, mis-timed entrances and exits, and missing and injured actors during the performance. Apart from a short prologue, all the lines are taken directly from Shakespeare’s script, although all the lengthy speeches have been cut to enable younger children to access the play. The play was performed with great success by a group of ten and eleven year olds in 2016.
This is a fantastic way to introduce children to Shakespearean performance. The prologue is the only material added to Shakeapeare’s script, apart from clear stage directions.
The price of a script includes a licence for 1 performance.
This is a copymaster script with permission to photocopy or print off as many copies as you need for your rehearsals. Once we have received your payment, you will be emailed a download link for your script. If an actor loses a script, simply run off another.
You will need a performance licence for every performance of the play.
