Mischief and magic combine at The Capitol, Horsham, this summer when the award-winning HAODS, Horsham Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society, mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with a lively new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The show takes place in the venue’s main theatre from Wednesday to Saturday, August 10-13. Performances start at 7.30pm with a matinee on August 13 at 2.30pm.

Shakespeare’s best loved comedy tells the story of four runaway lovers who find themselves right in the middle of an argument between the King and Queen of the fairies.

At the same time a troupe of not-so-professional actors are trying to rehearse a play in honour of King Theseus’ Wedding.

Then, between the groups struts a mischievous fairy henchman carrying a love potion capable of making anyone fall in love with the first person they see...

Featuring original music, a bespoke set and wonderful costumes, as well as a full cast of adults and juniors, HAODS’ first Shakespeare promises a little midsummer magic for all.
