The Midsummer Carnival

Immerse yourself into a whirl of magic and mayhem at The Midsummer Carnival.

What’s it all about?

This is an immersive theatre experience presenting an original adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Just like the classic play, this twisted tale of love and hypnotism sees four young lovers tangled together by a meddlesome mesmerist.

Is ‘immersive’ code for ‘audience participation’?

The Midsummer Carnival is the handiwork of the creators of Cluedo: The Interactive Game. The audience participates in the theatrical work and interacts with actors but no-one is forcibly pulled up on stage or made to take part against their will.

By the numbers

  • The Midsummer Carnival runs Friday 24 January to Sunday 9 February
  • 75 minutes, no interval
  • Show start time varies (6:30pm or 8:30pm)
