Drug Aware Midsummer Dreaming: The Bard Enters the Bush

What's going on in the Bard's bush? It seems some edgy festival goers have escaped onto his stage and are helping him (along with some questionable arts students) shape up one of his best works yet...  Join us on this ethereal, grungy re-imagining of Shakespeare's classic tale created, performed, crewed & produced entirely by local young people.

When: January 17, 18 & 19 @ 7pm (additional 2pm matinee on Jan 19)
Where: Quarry Adventure Park Amphitheatre, Meadow Springs
