A Midsummer Night's Dream -- Summer 2013
Directed by Simon Pell & Co-Directed by Mary Stastny
The Castle Players presented A Midsummer Night's Dream in the grounds of the Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle in July 2013. It was The Castle Players 25th anniversary production and saw the introduction of online booking for the first time.
This Dream had it all - fairies, lovers, heroes, comedy, drama, confused identities, and a play within a play.
We would like to thank our audience - new and established - for their loyal support and for the amazing feedback the show received.
"Fantastic. Well done to all. Can't wait for Romeo & Juliet next year! Magical evening!"
"A superlative performance from The Castle Players last night: rowdy, raucous and excellent fun. Highly recommended for next year."
"We had a great time - another brilliant performance. Huge laughs. Great setting."
"Truly magical and very funny."
"You can be sure we will be coming again next year to see Romeo & Juliet."
