Note from the Director ...

 

 

I fell in love with Shakespeare when I was at school and I loved the intricacy of the words and phrases. I didn't necessarily understand it, but I had a wonderful English Literature teacher who made it all come to life. Over the years I have watched many different versions of various plays, on stage and film, and have gradually come to realise that quite a lot of it now makes sense!

 

When we were looking for a production for the this spring I tentatively suggested Shakespeare and the committee began to show interest. Having tackled "Murder in the Cathedral" last year it was felt that we were ready for another challenge, so here we are with "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

 

It was a whimsy to set it in the 1960's, but it just seemed to fit. Unfortunately, I can remember the 60's all too well, but since they say if you remember the 60's you weren't there perhaps I shouldn't admit to it! What I will say is that I was very young and missed out on a lot of things I didn't know about till later, but I still had a lot of fun.

 

Talking of fun, that's what this production has been. The cast have thrown themselves (quite literally in some cases!) into it with gusto and I have just loved watching it taking on a life of it's own. Everyone - cast, production and backstage - has worked so hard and I want to thank them with all my heart, 

 

 

but above all I must say a special word of thanks to my wonderful producer, Anj, without whom we'd probably still be looking at a pile of scripts and costumes and wondering where to start!

 

So, here we are, bringing my dream (or Dream) to life. I love it when a plan comes together...
