NW Children’s Theater presents an original adaptation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” most enjoyed by ages 8 and up, streaming online from Nov. 12 to Dec. 6. More information is available here on streaming and live watch parties.
Journey through a wooded fairyland where the powers of magic, mischief, and love rule. Artistic Director Sarah Jane Hardy and award-winning choreographer Anita Menon of the Anjali School of Dance join forces to bring this abridged version of Shakespeare’s comedy to life in a brand new way, blending classic English literature with Indian dance and culture, and featuring an all-youth cast.
A ticket to the show unlocks all four episodes of this online original play. Watch all of the episodes in one sitting, or watch them at your leisure. There’s no limit to how many times you can watch each episode.
Only one package is required per household. The cost is $20 and includes access to all four episodes, running 10 to 15 minutes each, of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” plus bonus content featuring videos that include a deep dive into the story, and interviews with the cast and creative teams.
Live watch party packages are $30 and allow to watch the show over Zoom with select members of the cast, crew, and creative team at 2 p.m. Nov. 15 or 5 p.m. Nov. 21. Along with other audience members, everyone “binge watches” all four episodes together over Zoom. Before the show, you’ll can virtually meet the cast; during the show, the cast, crew, and creative team provide written commentary and invite you to share your reactions via chat; and after the show, there’ll be an opportunity to ask questions.
