On Wednesday 10th October, students in Years 7-8 were whisked away to the land of the fairies when they visited The Crucible to see the theatre’s latest production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Pupils were mesmerised by the psychedelic extravaganza which cleverly incorporated a magical piano as both a prop and accompaniment to the play, much of which was set to music. However, the highlight had to be the grand finale with the Mechanical’s performance, which transported the play’s setting to the Glam Rock era of the 1970s. The students thoroughly enjoyed their experience and it will no doubt help them to understand the play which they are currently studying in their KS3 English lessons.
