Newtown’s own Kim Jones joins a brilliant cast to bring you Shakespeare's most beloved romantic comedy - 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
STARRING Newtown resident Kim Jones, there is love and magic in the air later this month when one of Sydney's longest-standing community theatre companies presents a brilliant cast with a fresh take on Shakespeare's most beloved romantic comedy - 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
Deep in a woodland clearing, enters a mysterious fairyland and a time of myth and legend where anything is possible … and nothing is it what it seems!
It's almost 40 years since The Guild presented a full production of a Shakespeare play and director Susan Stapleton knows it's well overdue.
It's the personal quality of Shakespeare's work that fascinates Susan: "He can be very cheeky and bawdy yet, as a poet, frames his ideas in such beautiful imagery that you can't help but see into the human soul.
"The fact that this insight is over 400 years old - yet both timeless and universal -makes it all the more intriguing. I'm so very excited and can't wait to share it with our audiences."
The Dream is Shakespeare's funniest and most accessible play and will delight both devotees of The Bard and audience members less familiar with his works.
Step into the forest, be swept up in a dreamy world of rousing medieval music, mysterious, atmospheric sets and elaborately costumed performers. The Guild Theatre's A Midsummer Night's Dream is a must-see!
It's on offer from May 18-June 9, at The Guild, right at Rockdale Station.
Tickets (including refreshments and program): Adults, $25; concessions, $20; groups 20 or more, $20.
Special prices for Wednesday Nights on application.
