The Byron Ballet Company is offering local dancers the opportunity to perform with seasoned professional dancers in Shakespeare’s famous tale, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The tale brings to life a comedic story of unrequited love and the merging of both the human and fairy worlds. 

Special guests include: Micheal Braun as  Oberon, King of the fairies; Brittany Duwner as Titania, Queen of the fairies; and Joshua Freedman, who will bring delight to the stage as the cheeky trickster, Puck.

Director Yvonne Hall says ballet students will gain priceless experience and inspirational training with the guest professionals. ‘We are sure that local audiences will love the show. There is a lack of male dancers in country areas so it’s vital that we can get these dancers into our local community and show the young people the brilliance of these dance artists. This particular show involves four male professional guests.’

There will be performance opportunities for ballet students at both junior and senior levels.

The performance dates will be 14–16 October at the Byron Theatre. Any local dancers who would like to be involved can contact the director via email at [email protected]
