If you enjoy Shakespeare come along to the Bay Playhouse in Batemans Bay to see Bay Theatre Players’ production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ which opens next week on Friday, 16 March.
In addition to hearing the Bard’s immortal lines – for example, ‘the course of true love never did run smooth!’ - you will also get a chance to see how an Elizabethan theatre looked and operated. Artistic director, Sam Lloyd’s set faithfully mirrors that of a tudor theatre and her cast and crew are rapidly learning how different this is and how to move around it!
And you will experience evocative and compelling lighting, courtesy of lighting designer, Martyn Lloyd.
There are only eight performances, so please come along and fall under the spell of one of Shakespeare’s most joyful and popular comedies.
The story will surround you with magic and humour and the romantic highs and lows of love in an enchanted forest, where even fairies succumb to human emotions.
And, where a magic potion grants love at first sight, anything can, and does, happen!
Seats are available from www.trybooking.com/343538.
Tickets will also be available on Saturdays only, from 10 am – 1 pm at the Playhouse, 33 Gregory Street, Batemans Bay, telephone, (02) 4472 7580.
