A Midsummer Night’s Dream
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
A new musical Shakespeare taking audiences to the glittering, hip swivelling age of 70s disco.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

24th May - 11th June 2022
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Adam Nichols and Matt Strachan
Musically Directed by Tom Cagnoni
Presented by OVO

OVO’s brand new musical Shakespeare transports audiences to the glittering, hustling, hip swivelling age of disco.

In the beige 1970s in a down at heel working men’s club somewhere in the north of England, barman Nick Bottom dreams of a music career. The only problem is, he can’t sing.

Meanwhile, Mia, Helen, Dean and Andy are drinking, snogging, arguing and fighting - much to the disapproval of their parents.

But then... It all gets a bit messy. A mystical figure appears. And they are all transported to a rather different sort of club.

Once there they find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted fun palace where games of fantasy and love ensue. Where a new dance craze called disco is like a religion, and its masters are like gods.

But will Nick discover his voice? Will Mia, Andy, Helen and Dean be reconciled? And will some of the disco world’s magic rub off on the uneventful lives they left behind?

This promises to be The Dream as you’ve never seen it before – featuring some of the best dance music ever produced, from the likes of Abba, Gloria Gaynor, Bee Gees, Donna Summer, The Jacksons and many more. So come and join our live band at the Midsummer Party under the stars.

If you enjoyed our 80s rock festival Merry Wives of Windsor, and our As You Like It set in the summer of love, then this is the show for you.

John McCusker
John McCusker
Featuring Sam Kelly, Helen McCabe and Toby Shaer.

The John McCusker Band

31st May 2022
Featuring Sam Kelly, Helen McCabe and Toby Shaer
Support from Ellie McCann
Presented by St Albans Folk Music

Born in Bellshill, near Glasgow, John began playing whistle and fiddle as a child and joined the legendary Scottish band the Battlefield Band aged 17. During his 11 years with the band, he also released his first two solo recordings, a debut album in 1995 and Yella Hoose in the 2000s. His most recent album, released last year to celebrate his thirty years as a musician, featured tracks from his solo records and TV and film soundtracks over the years.

As his career developed he increasingly transcended musical boundaries.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
A new musical Shakespeare taking audiences to the glittering, hip swivelling age of 70s disco.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

24th May - 11th June 2022
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Adam Nichols and Matt Strachan
Musically Directed by Tom Cagnoni
Presented by OVO

OVO’s brand new musical Shakespeare transports audiences to the glittering, hustling, hip swivelling age of disco.

In the beige 1970s in a down at heel working men’s club somewhere in the north of England, barman Nick Bottom dreams of a music career. The only problem is, he can’t sing.

Meanwhile, Mia, Helen, Dean and Andy are drinking, snogging, arguing and fighting - much to the disapproval of their parents.

But then... It all gets a bit messy. A mystical figure appears. And they are all transported to a rather different sort of club.

Once there they find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted fun palace where games of fantasy and love ensue. Where a new dance craze called disco is like a religion, and its masters are like gods.

But will Nick discover his voice? Will Mia, Andy, Helen and Dean be reconciled? And will some of the disco world’s magic rub off on the uneventful lives they left behind?

This promises to be The Dream as you’ve never seen it before – featuring some of the best dance music ever produced, from the likes of Abba, Gloria Gaynor, Bee Gees, Donna Summer, The Jacksons and many more. So come and join our live band at the Midsummer Party under the stars.

If you enjoyed our 80s rock festival Merry Wives of Windsor, and our As You Like It set in the summer of love, then this is the show for you.
