Shakespeare's magical comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream is coming to Katherine this May.
Staged at the Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts and Culture Centre Ampitheatre, attendees are encouraged to bring picnics, rugs and bean bags for a night under the stars.
Godinymayin director Poppy Searle said she is thrilled to be hosting a unique and entertaining interpretation of a classic Shakespearian comedy as part of the dry season program of events.
"The cast of eight professional actors will take you on a spell-binding ride as they tell the tale of four young lovers who find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where spirits play and fairies rule," she said.
"Essential Theatre Artistic directors Amanda LaBonte and Sophie Lampel have had extensive experience delivering vibrant and engaging theatre productions for over 17 years.
"They are passionate theatre makers who have longstanding experience re-interpreting classic texts for modern audiences.
"Mark Wilson (Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth) also has a wealth of experience performing and directing Shakespeare and is delighted to be returning to the company to direct A Midsummer Night's Dream."
Tickets cost $30 for an adult, $25 for concession, $20 for children 12 and under $90 for a family.
