Shakespeare at the Rock 2016:
Midsummer Nights: A Dream
Shakespeare’s most famous comedy, fast asleep. Spurred on by their amorous and ambitious dreams, aspiring actors, lovers, and fairies meet in the woods of their sleeping minds in this highly physical adaptation of the classic play.
TBT is engineering a massive collision: English theatre's greatest playwright, the stunning new Rock Gardens of the RBG, and this area's best up and coming talent.
Shakespeare and TBT?
This will be unlike any Shakespeare you've seen before. This Aug 10-21 at the RBG's Rock Gardens we're staging our take on A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Talent? Who's got Talent?
This cast does. We've noticed the difficulty emerging artists have here in getting off the ground - and we lose artistic talent to Toronto/further cities every year as a result.
So in casting this piece, we reached out to this area's post secondary theatre programs to offer senior students/recent graduates paid theatre work. We're teaching the next generation that being an artist doesn't have to mean moving away.
