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

This is an arrangement developed between the RSC and Equity


Here are just some of the ways schools across the nation are celebrating A Midsummer Night’s Dream as part of RSC Dream Team 2016.

Whether you are teaching a lesson inspired by the play or putting on a full production in your school, we would love to hear about it. Why not take on one of our challenges, or try out new ways of approaching the play in your classroom.

Share your thoughts, photos and videos on Twitter and Instagram using #RSCDreamTeam and help us celebrate Shakespeare’s legacy for young people today.

By sharing your journey you could also be in with a chance to come and perform in Stratford upon Avon between 27 June and 1 July 2016 or work with an RSC actor in your school. Let us know when you register if you would like to receive further information about these exciting opportunities.

Make us part of whatever dream you build!
