BISS Puxi Presents ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’

24 February 2015

The BISS Puxi Performing Arts Faculty enthusiastically invites you to their Spring production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, running from 17 – 19 March.

This most well-known of all Shakespearean comedies follows four young lovers’ chase through the forest as they are taunted and teased by devious and cunning fairies. These though, are no ordinary fairies! Set to atmospheric and contemporary music these are highly choreographed dancers who, under the leadership of the acrobatic Puck, take the audience through a journey of visual treats as they create mayhem and mischief at every turn.

At the same time in the forest a group of mechanicals rehearse a play for the upcoming wedding of Duke Theseus. However, they too are terrorised by the spirits of the forest as their lead thespian, Bottom, becomes magically ‘transformed’. Even the Queen of the Fairies cannot escape these devilish tricks and becomes herself bewitched, adding yet another level of mayhem to this adventure through the forest upon a midsummer’s eve.

Suitable for the whole family, this production, involving over 50 students, is a visual feast which shows just how relevant Shakespeare can still be for a 21st Century audience. Having spent months of rehearsals committing themselves to the worthy entertainment of their community we offer this invitation to anyone willing to be thoroughly entertained, be you student, parent, teacher or neighbour.

The play will run from 17 March – 19 March inclusively. Performances will begin at 7:00 pm with refreshments served from 6:30pm, and will run for approximately 90 minutes. Due to the length of the production we do not advise that very young children attend.

If you would like a ticket please fill out the form on the letter that went home, you can find the link below and return it to school. Alternatively, come in and purchase directly from the reception areas.

We look forward to seeing you there!
