A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
15 JUNE - 1 JULY 2017
Our 1960's inspired open-air production of A Midsummer Night's Dream was staged in the former chalk quarry, Racks Close. This was the first time GSC had used the venue and it proved to be an instant with the audience - 73% of whom never knew it existed!
Director Lotte Wakeham joined the company for her first GSC show, and we welcomed a largely new cast to Guildford . Only Owen Oakshott (previously Petruchio in 2015's Shrew) having worked for GSC before.
"Thank you for a fantastic night at Midsummer Nights Dream, we haven't laughed that much for ages! Great setting and fab cast!"
"Cannot tell you how fabulous this is. Number of kids who loved it too. Whole cast wonderful. As good, if not better than anything in London."
