Get tickets to Midsummer Nights Dream

Summer Shakespeare presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Shane Bosher.

Love turns the world upside down. Clothes and social skins are shed, nice people turn nasty and imaginations run riot.
Expect ferociously beautiful poetry, robust physicality, anarchic invention and a donkey, as Shakespeare’s oh-so-magical play is brought to life this summer.

This year we bring Summer Shakespeare indoors to The Basement Theatre, Te Whaea.
Bring your playful selves, and be prepared for a theatre experience like no other. No picnics this year, but we have our very own Mocktail Bar!

See more about this year’s production.

7pm performances, except Sundays 4pm. No performances on Mondays.
