About Midsummer Mixtape Summer School

Get ready to run up that hill, don your double denim and slip on your sweatbands...the 80s are back!

The Octagon Theatre are looking for young people aged 8-16 to spend two weeks exploring and rehearsing an 80s-style reimagining of A Midsummer Night's Dream to share with family and friends.

With the Octagon's Creative Engagement team, you'll work together as actors and creatives to tell a fun take on Shakespeare's classic comedy. You'll develop acting and performance skills, tackling characters from fierce fairies to mischievous sprites.

At the end of the week, family and friends will be invited into the theatre to enjoy a short performance.
