A co-production between the Royal Shakespeare Company and amateur companies across the UK

This is an arrangement developed between the RSC and Equity


To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, we are inviting every UK school to join RSC Dream Team 2016 and take part in a nationwide celebration of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Whether you weave lines from the play into a lesson, create an Athenian wood in your playground or put on a full production, every school can get involved.

Join RSC Dream Team today and download FREE resources including:

  • 60 and 30 minute edits of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, for use by secondary, primary and special schools
  • A specially-composed score suitable for all ages and abilities
  • A range of other supporting resources including guidance on staging the play
