The Massey Theatre is excited to bring this enjoyable production to its stage. Master story tellers, Monster Theatre, have created a new adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, making it understandable, joyful, and highly entertaining.
This is a perfect opportunity to introduce kids not only to live theatre but to Shakespeare. Monster Theatre takes this Shakespeare classic that is a hilarious tale of fairies, love potions and talking donkey and presents it in a fun and magical way.
Committed to presenting history and myths, Monster Theatre creates exciting new packages for today’s audiences. They believe in creating theatre that is both smart and stupid, high-brow and low-brow, doing months of research for each new creation, always keeping the work accessible.
In addition, Monster Theatre will hold a workshop on Friday, March 24th from 11am – 5pm at the Massey Theatre.

Monster Theatre strives to create original plays that change the world by delighting, inspiring, challenging and provoking audiences across the globe.
Monster Theatre creates original plays that challenge preconceptions, excite imaginations and embody the way of the Monster: strange, twisted and bizarre on the outside, but always with a noble heart.
Our process puts story first by adapting universal stories to make them relevant for our specific time and place in the world, or re-imagining history with impeccable research and utter irreverence.
Our unique brand of theatre applies the philosophy and techniques of improvisation during both the creation process and in performance, the results are fast-paced, physical, loose, cerebral and often, but not always, comedic.
Monster Theatre produces work that engages the hearts, brains and guts of all audiences; comedies that excite intellectuals, histories that shock teenagers, and theatre for young audiences that make adults roll on the floor laughing.
