Product Description

Musicline's first "Shakespeare" is another musical masterpiece from the pen of hit-writer Malcolm Sircom. Blues, Flamenco, a Conga, a fiery Latin American Tango and a Rock number appropriately called "Rock Bottom" - these, together with beautiful lyrical songs, give the flavour of this brilliantly innovative treatment of the Bards favourite comedy, A Midsummers Night Dream.

In a modern setting during the run up to the Olympic Games in Athens, the script, while using some of Shakespeare's more accessible and beautiful passages, is fresh, invigorating and riotously funny. An ideal show for schools, colleges and youth groups, it has plenty of principle characters and an essential choir/chorus which is active throughout so every member of the cast from youngest to oldest, has a vital role to play.

This is marvellously off-the-wall entertainment takes the fear out of Shakespeare for your pupils, at the same time delightfully introducing them to one of his masterpieces. Suitable for Senior Schools (11 - 18), Youth Groups and Amateur Theatre Groups.
