A classic shakespearean comedy performed on the most beautiful spot on the Sunshine Coast!
A Midsummers Night Dream is a play about the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies, and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who’s transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves. This work is widely performed around the world, and no wonder – it’s about the world’s most popular pastime, falling in love! But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all.
The Little Seed Theatre Company are back for the Anywhere Theatre Festival with the beloved Shakespearian classic, “A Midsummer Nights Dream!” We have it all; the magic, the actors, the brilliant costumes, and most importantly – the most amazing location!

So grab your sunset picnic and that drink from the bar, this is a show you do not want to miss!
“Lovers and madmen have such seething brains,
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend
More than cool reason ever comprehends.
The lunatic, the lover and the poet
Are of imagination all compact:
One sees more devils than vast hell can hold,
That is, the madman: the lover, all as frantic,
Sees Helen’s beauty in a brow of Egypt:
The poet’s eye, in fine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.”
