DHS production to be staged at Seabrooke’s Theatre.

The first production to be staged in Seabrooke’s Theatre this year is a DHS production titled Midsummer Nights.

Loosely based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this is a fun production for the whole family. The playwright, Bryan Leys, has set the story in California in the 60’s and the “partner swopping” of Shakespeare’s original story affects a group of teenage surfer kids and their parents. The cast of 22 includes actresses from Maris Stella, Our Lady of Fatima and Durban Girls’ High School.

Midsummer Nights runs from May 4 to 8 at 19h00. Tickets R35 booked through Karen Krause on 031 277 1500. Seating is unreserved. A cash bar will be available before the show. There is no interval and the running time is 70 minutes.
