The QMT summer production is normally a show for all-comers. We like to field a large cast and this year it is co-production between The Bancroft Players and our famous Big Spirit Youth Theatre. If you’ve always wanted to work with Big Spirit and see how they do things, this is a great opportunity. Big Spirit for their part, always love working with the adult society and these co-productions are always very joyous affairs. A Midsummer’s Dream by William Shakespeare of course needs no introduction – it’s by far the Bard’s funniest and most summery piece of work. The show will take place in the QMT as The Dell is not open to us. However, we will bring the warmth of a lovely summer evening into the Theatre with a very special and magical production.
Come along and join in the fun of the auditions – we are making it a little event in its own right in keeping with the play.
