"It's such a magical script," Amanda said. "A Midsummer Night's Dream has really stood the test of time and, in fact, is the most performed Shakespeare play. The celebration of love and life fits in so well with the festive season and its playful and energetic nature makes it a play that appeals to all generations.
"Shakespeare's language can be a challenge yet it's the best training ground for aspiring actors. He teaches us so much about text work so it's a great tool for actors in training."
"A Midsummer Night's Dream also places physical demands on the actors. The thrill of the forest and the magic that ensues leaves the characters somewhat out of breath, which is what I want to capture in this performance. I want to show how the events move so fast the characters seem caught up in a whirlwind of events, manipulated by the magical fairies of the forest."
