Slow, Interactive, Entertaining

See it if interacted with audience, lots of opportunities for children to feel part of the action. Helped by the tiny theatre. Best for age 4-7

Don't see it if First half was a bit slow but second half was laugh out loud.

For a previous production

For a previous production

" ‘Midsummer Mechanicals’ is full of nice ideas, but all it adds up to is a big buzzing headache of a show."
