Centennial Park is the perfect setting to stage the comic story of star crossed lovers Hermia and Lysander and the characters of the Fairy Kingdom in Shakespeare's classic play A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The parklands provides a natural theatre setting for the story to take place in, where chaos ensues after mischievous Puck, the servant of feuding King and Queen of the Fairies, drops the juice of a magical love potion flower onto the eyelid of the wrong person, causing them to fall in love with the first thing they see when they wake up.

The third season of Shakespeare's most famous and beloved comedy will come to life in the spring, magical surrounds of the Belvedere Amphitheatre in Centennial Park.

The upcoming production is staged by local theatre group Wild Rumpus Productions starring Marika Aubrey as Hippolyta/Titania, Tony Cogin Bottom/Egeus, Sam Haft Lysander/F Lute/Moth, Ben Lewis Lysander/Snug/Cobweb, Frank Hansen Puck/Philostrate, Torquil Neilson Oberon/Theseus, Melle Stewart Helena/Snout/Peaseblossom, Joseph Sullivan Quince/Mustardseed and Lieschen Pogue as Hermia/Starveling .

The performance is a family event with children under 12 receiving free admission.

The audience is encouraged to bring a picnic rug and picnic with pre-packaged food and non-alcoholic beverages available to purchase on site.
