2022 Summer

5 - 20 MARCH 2022 | Central Park, Malvern

Melbourne Shakespeare Company will be returning to Central Park in March 2022 with our new musical adaptation of A Midsummer's Night Dream.  


Love is in the air in Athens – and it’s contagious. Hermia and Lysander are besotted with one another, while Helena adores Demetrius. The only snag is that Demetrius loves Hermia – and he’s got Hermia’s father on his side. The three worlds collide in an explosion of comic confusion that throws the future of all the lovers into jeopardy.
