The Victorian Youth Theatre is proud to present a season of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ – suitable for the whole family!

Students from the Hawthorn and Camberwell Senior Actors Studio spent lockdown working on this passion project.  They, along with Artistic Director Robert Coates, have keep the dramatic fires burning remotely and only in recent weeks have they been able to come back together to rehearse in person.


A story of order and disorder, reality and appearance and love and marriage. 

While preparations are underway for the marriage of Athenian duke Theseus and Amazon queen Hippolyta, fairy king Oberon and his tricky jester, Puck, make mischief with the indiscriminate use of a powerful love potion. Lysander and Demetrius both fall for Helena, raising the jealousy of Hermia, whose father is pressuring her to marry Demetrius despite Lysander’s love for her.

Written by William Shakespeare | Adapted by Robert Coates.
