BUD­DING ac­tors from Yax­ley are putting the final touches to­gether for their up­com­ing pro­duc­tion this week­end.

Yax­ley Ama­teur Play­ers’ per­for­mances of Mid­sum­mer Nights - an al­ter­na­tive ver­sion of Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream - will take place on Fri­day and Satur­day.

Both per­for­mances will start at 7.30pm and will both take place at Yax­ley Public Hall.

Yax­ley Ama­teur Play­ers’ Chris Akrill said: “It is an al­ter­na­tive ver­sion of Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream prob­a­bly best de­scribed as Shake­speare meets the 60s.

“The show largely fol­lows the Shake­spearean story and in­cludes many well-known 60s hits.

“The au­di­ence will be treated to song and dance rou­tines as well as a good dose of com­edy with Bot­tom and the me­chan­i­cals.”

The show is be­ing di­rected by Deb­bie Barker and David Grif­fin, while mu­sic is pro­vided by the band Nil By Mouth.

Tick­ets cost £4 and are avail­able from our web­site www.yap.org.uk.
