DEEP IN THE ENCHANTED FOREST, A GROUP OF ACTORS ARE REHEARSING…

Unbeknown to them, Puck, the mischievous sprite, is eavesdropping. Thinking that Bottom is one of the worst actors he’s ever had the misfortune to listen to, Puck decides to play a trick on him and turn his head into that of a donkey! 

This sparks a hilarious sequence of events where the Queen of the Fairies falls in love with Bottom (donkey’s head and all!) and Puck keeps making mischief with a love potion. Not all is well in the woods… Everyone is falling in love with the wrong person! What is going on?

Puck’s Prank is a comic open-air retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set in the great outdoors with plenty of slapstick, silliness and buffoonery. It’s a high energy, modern and fun introduction to one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays. The script has been specially adapted for this age group and the outdoors with plenty of opportunities to bring its incredibly playful characters to life.

The mission will culminate with an exciting matinee performance on the last day in front of a select parent audience.  All children taking part will get to perform a speaking role.
 

A GREAT INTRODUCTION TO THE MAGIC OF AN OPEN-AIR THEATRE ADVENTURE: PLAYFUL, INFORMAL AND RICH IN OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHILDREN TO CHALLENGE THEMSELVES.


Parents: this mission will run at the same time as ‘Makers Lab: On set’, where children will work on the stage production of the play. Each mission is distinct but they will interact at set times throughout the week and will work together on the final 30 minute production.
