A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Johannesburg – Unforgettable Entertainment Debut!

Maynardville Open Air Festival, in association with VR Theatrical, proudly Presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream – An Iconic and Unforgettable Evening of Entertainment is debuting NOW in Johannesburg for the first time! For the first time ever in Johannesburg, Maynardville Open Air Festival, in association with VR Theatrical, is proud to present A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which will be an iconic and unforgettable evening of entertainment. Whether you’re a veteran theatre-goer or a newcomer to the stage, this show promises to captivate and enchant audiences of all ages.

For a limited run, this year’s hilarious, smash hit production of Shakespeare’s comedic masterpiece, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, will transport audiences into the captivating world of Athenian forests, where romance, mischief, and the whimsical realm of fairies collide in a tapestry of comedy and romance. Prepare to be captivated as this iconic play weaves a tale of love-struck couples, eccentric actors, and mischievous fairies, blurring the line between reality and fantasy.

An Enchanting Blend of Comedy, Love, and Talent

This magical journey of love and self-discovery is rife with mistaken identities, playful gender swaps, magical spells, and mischievous pranks, all brilliantly portrayed by a cast many will recognize – including Chi Mhende and Mark Elderkin, and will also be debuting paralympic athlete Caleb Swanepoel in the role of Puck.

The comedy explores the complexities of human relationships, the power of dreams, and the unpredictability of love, making it as relevant today as it was in Shakespeare’s time. Directed by the talented Geoffrey Hyland, A Midsummer Night’s Dream promises to be one of the biggest hits to be seen in Johannesburg theatres this season.
