Tiverton Community Arts Theatre celebrate Summer with an outdoor performance by the Festival Players Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Tiverton High School Wednesday 10 July 2013

Chairman of Tiverton Community Arts Theatre
Julian Morgan
will discuss the production on Phonic FM
'Classical Journey' 11.30am Tuesday 9 July
Following this Tuesday's interview with Fiona McLean, and the students of 'Joined Up Thinking Projects: Music', we have another special guest - joining us by telephone from Tiverton.

Julian Morgan, Chairman of 'Tiverton Community Arts Theatre', will join the 'Classical Journey' to tell us about the latest touring theatre production to come to Tiverton - courtesy of T.C.A.T.

This ambitious production is in the true Shakespearean tradition. 'The Festival Players' are touring the UK with their own adaptation of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", for an all-male cast - of six actors!

Director Michael Dyer has collaborated with writer Bryony Ruddock on a script which allows the six men to portray all the characters in this complex plot - with some pretty nifty costume changes.

The action will be enhanced by the music specially composed by Johnny Coppin, and performed in the great outdoors. Tiverton High School playing fields in the setting sun will be the backdrop for this momentous adventure.

Bring deckchairs. Bring a picnic. Make yourselves comfortable. The venue is open from 6.30pm on Wednesday evening. The action starts at 7.30pm.

Summer is here!
