Dream on Midsummer’s Night

It is now eight years since Wee Stories Theatre Company first brought live professional Theatre to the Johnshaven Village Hall when they enthralled a full house with their ingenious and dynamic production of “Treasure Island”.

Wee Stories returned to Johnshaven on Saturday night with a captivating presentation of “A Dream on Midsummer’s Night”, a re-working of Shakespeare’s famous fairy tale and one of his most widely performed works.

On a large and cleverly designed set four actors played the roles of all the characters in a humorous, inventive and fast flowing re-telling of the story of mischievous imps, supernatural spells, people in the wrong place at the wrong time and the unexpected always just around the corner. The highly effective use of puppetry and music throughout the performance added to the clear delight of an appreciative audience of 60.
