NORWICH PUPPET THEATRE PRESENTS
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
Professor Nick Bottom, the world-famous Shakespeare scholar, is about to present his talk on A Midsummer Night’s Dream but there is a technical problem. Professor Bottom’s laptop cannot contain the magical forces at play and the sprites in the software want to tell the story in their own words. Nick makes an ass of himself, and we are taken on a dreamy adventure full of love, fairies, and ridiculousness in Norwich Puppet Theatre’s sideways take on Shakespeare’s classic play with beautifully carved puppets, original music, and lots of shadows.
Recommended for ages 6-12.
