BANKWEST Shakespeare in the Park:
A Midsummer Night's Dream
We are thrilled to invite you to Fremantle Theatre Company’s exciting new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Come and experience the magic of Shakespeare in the
splendour of the park!
Join the Dreamers, the Lovers, and the woodland's King and the Queen. Come play with their delightful sprites and journey a while through a wild night in the forest.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the most beloved of Shakespeare’s canon, is a dazzling romantic comedy, celebrating young love, revelling in courtship, and honouring the marriage of true minds.
This glorious adventure is the perfect poetry with which to serenade a warm summer’s night in WA’s most beautiful landscapes and lit by a sky full of sparkling stars.
So join us, the charming troupe of would-be actors that we call our Mechanicals, and all who have made their way to the forest to pursue their own brave ambitions, this night and wonder at what this enchanting forest has in store for all!

Start Time: Performances will begin at 7.00/7.15pm and be preceded by an hour of 'picnic time' for audience to enjoy the park and good weather with food and drink.
Food & Beverage: Both are available onsite at each venue and you are welcome to pack a hamper to bring along - however there is NO BYO alcohol, so please leave your own adult-drinks and try some of the wonderful WA product at the bar!
Running Time: Approximately two hours and the show will enjoy a 20 minute intermission.
Seating: Each venue is a little different, of course, but we are always outside and embracing that! So there is no fixed seating or seat numbers, and for the most part it's a 'rug & cushion' affair. If you need lumbar support, try to think ahead, and if you definitely need a seat, we understand, but ask that you try to bring something low and find a place a little further back that does not hamper another's view too much, as many will ground themselves.
Accessibility: the show is family friendly and all are welcome. Please look to site plans for each venue on their home websites to identify the ample parking ahead of the event and ensure you arrive with time to park and find your way stage-side. Ushers will meet you at marked access point to check ticketing and guide you toward seating.
Tickets Available from: www.iwannaticket.com.au or take advantage of the 'Buy Tickets' button above!
Bankwest Customers: be sure to bring your card with you to identify yourself as a Bankwest customer so that we may better assist you and show you the special benefits onsite!
