A Midsummer Night’s Dream… A Puppet Epic!

Magic! Romance! A Donkey! Oh what fools these puppets be!

Shakey-Shake and Friends is back with their hit FringeKids! show, an epic retelling of Shakespeare’s classic ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’…with puppets!

Shakey-Shake is getting married, so his friends put on a play to celebrate: featuring mischievous sprites, quarreling lovers, and of course, a puppet who gets turned into a donkey!

Follow Shakey-Shake, Zip, Len, Lucy, Paris, Anne, Donna, and Marlowe through the classic story in a fun, playful manner that combines the humour and style of the Muppet tradition with the magic of Shakespeare!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream… A Puppet Epic! runs July 16-19 at the Palmerston Library Theatre in repertory with Honest Aesop’s Fables from Tarradiddle Productions!

Reviews

Children were on the edge of their seats enjoying the humorous lines and especially the physical comedy.
