What do Beyoncé and Shakespeare have in common? CCADS’ interpretation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which will be brought to life when they return to the Square Tower on Monday.
In celebration of the 450th anniversary of the Bard’s birth, the award-winning theatre company makes its Shakespearean debut with a streamlined version that runs at just an hour and 40 minutes.
The experience begins from the moment that audiences step into the tower, where they will find themselves at a pre-wedding reception for Duke Theseus and Duchess Hippolyta before being taken to different locations around their estate.
In a modern twist, this theatrical experience is set to a soundtrack of modern romantic music from Joni Mitchell and Kylie Minogue to Take That, Beyonc é and Rihanna.
The play will be performed by a top cast of local talent, headed by recent ‘Best Actor In A Comedy’ Curtain Call Award winner Tony Dart as Bottom.
This immersive production is suitable for audiences of all ages and less able-bodied audience members are catered for.
CCADS presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream on October 13-18 at The Square Tower from 7.30pm plus a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets: £12, buy online at ccads-theatre.co.uk
