Families can enjoy enchanting 60 minute storytelling performances as part of at Shakespeare's Globe this Easter, exploring the magic and mayhem of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Sessions are running daily throughout the Easter holidays (no sessions on 6 and 8 April).
The performances are designed for children aged 5 and upwards (but younger siblings are also encouraged to attend).
Created especially for children and their families, The Dream Space explores the illusion and mystery of one of Shakespeare's best loved and funniest plays through a mixture of performance and puppetry. Taking place within the state-of-the-art Globe Education Sackler Studios, these fun, interactive performances invite families to join a team of 'Fairy Finders' on an expedition searching for a missing fairy. The quest leads the participants to the enchanted Dream Space inhabited by characters from A Midsummer Night's Dream, including Titania, Oberon and the mischievous Puck.
Using an array of magical puppets, madcap performers, creative costumes and soundscapes all creating the Dream Space world, the sessions bring the characters and themes of the play to life in a way designed to immerse the audience with the performers in a shared creative discovery where they feel a part of the world at every stage of the performance.
