As part of Canterbury Shakespeare Festival 2024...

A Kid-Summer Night’s Dream was devised with an audience of 5-11yr olds in mind but may be enjoyed by anyone who would enjoy a less serious approach to a Shakespeare classic. This version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream has all the comedy and confusion of the original play but is considerably shorter (about 50 minutes) with more audience interaction and none of the boring speeches. However, within the informal theatrical style occasional snippets of original text slip in to allow the audience to experience the glorious rhythm and musicality of Shakespearean language.

This performance will be at the Ebury Hotel, 65-67 New Dover Rd, Canterbury CT1 3DX

CSF: A Kidsummer Night’s Dream (Ebury Hotel)

Thu 25 - Fri 26 July


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
