Key Stage 3 Production 2016

A display celebrating the success of this production will appear near the Main Hall, replacing the Macbeth (2014) display.


Synopsis

In recognition of the 400th Anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, St. Mary’s Menston welcomes you to their Key Stage Three production of one of his most famous plays ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.

Come and watch as three plots connected by a celebration of the wedding of Duke Theseus of Athens and the Amazon Queen Hippolyta begin to intertwine. 

Taking place simultaneously in a woodland and the realm of the fairies, led by Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the fairies, the Lovers have run away from the world of Athens, the Mechanicals are attempting to rehearse a play fit for the Duke’s wedding and Oberon quarrels with Titania over an Indian boy whom they both want. Throughout this, the mischievous Pucks create confusion as they use their magical powers.
