A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Fringe
HNC Acting and Performance students took their interpretaion of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year as part of their HND induction. The show relived the angst of young unrequited love, the nerves of amateur actors who have to perform for the Duke or risk being hanged, and the mischief and mayhem caused by the fairies.
The students put on two performances at the first fully-themed Fringe venue, the Edinburgh Elim. Before the start of one of the shows, the students led a Workshop for pupils of St Mun's Primary. The children enjoyed thier time at the show and the workshop and had some really positive things to say:
‘I never thought I would enjoy Shakespeare so much, but the cast were great and made it very easy to follow the plot.’ (Emma, 11years)
‘The cast were very energetic. I liked the fight scene between Lysander and Demetrius. I’d like to be an actor when I grow up.’ (Dominic, 11years)
‘It was a fantastic experience. I loved that it had an eighties theme, it showed that Shakespeare and his work are as just as enjoyable today as they were when they were first written. The live performance made it all come to life, I give it 5 out of 5.’ (Sophie, 11 years)
'Kyle (Lysander) was excellent. We have seen him in other shows and we're all very proud of him, especially since he went to our school. He was very ‘smoochy’ with Hermia and it was funny when he was accidentally made to fall in love with Helena and was trying to ‘smooch’ her too.’ (Ewan, 11 years)
