Outdoor production of A Midsummer Night's Dream planned for July 2021

We are delighted to announce that plans are underway for a spectacular outdoor production of 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream'. A comedy by William Shakespeare Adapted and Directed by Maria Bates.

The play will be performed in the picturesque grounds of Rauceby Hall during July 2021, all things permitting and we will be opening the 'doors' one hour prior to the performance to allow the audience to come and enjoy a picnic before the show if they so desire.

Fancy getting involved?

We will be starting on Google Meets so here are the first dates for your diary.

Saturday 6th February 2021 @ 2 pm – Read through of the script

Sunday 7th February 2021 @ 2 pm – First Audition

Monday 8th February 2021 @ 7.30 pm – 2nd Audition

If you would like to register your early interest in this project (currently adult members only please, youth cast members will be chosen directly from the SLTA in due course if we are able to do so), send an email to [email protected] titled MSND 2021.

We will be looking for a full cast (including singers, musicians, and physical performers) and crew plus many FOH volunteers to manage this exciting event.

When you send your email, please state:

  1. Your Name
  2. The Parts you are interested in reading for or the role you would like to take backstage. Please note the role of Stage Manager has already been filled.

You will then be sent an invitation to the meeting via email, prior to the event.

I am hugely excited to be starting this project with you all and cannot wait to see you at the auditions.
