to Waikari mill

Plotting: North Canterbury's Bede
Crean, in an image from the show
poster, dreams up mischief as Oberon,
King of the Fairies in Shakespeare's A
Midsummer Night's Dream.
BOTTOM, PUCK, Oberon, Titania,
the star-crossed lovers and a sup-
porting cast of stroppy politicians
and assorted manipulative fairies
will creep out of the magic woods
this weekend and onto the boards at
Sam Mahon s Mill in Waikari.
However, this interpretation of
Shakespeare s A Midsummer Night's
Dream promises to bring with it a
definite Canterbury quality.
Just for three days, Athens has
become today s Christchurch, with
the Duke re-interpreted as the city s
The four lovers are part of the
Garden City s trendy set, who run
away into the magic woods, finding
themselves in the bush and high
country of North Canterbury. Here
they bump into fairy king Oberon, a
high country station owner, complete
with hat and Drizabone.
Director Richard McCubbin says
the production s simple and express-
ive staging was inspired by a per-
formance he saw at London s Globe
Theatre last year.
The Globe is open to the elements
and it s a very simple stage. That s
what we ve tried to capture at Sam
Mahon s Mill, he says.
It s a very basic set -- just two
stages at one end of the building --
with minimal lighting. The idea is
very much to let the play and its
magic speak for themselves.
The cast of 15 has been rehearsing
since October, Mr McCubbin says.
They range in age from the littlest
fairy, who is 4 years old, to the eldest
member of the team at 72.
A Midsummer Night's Dream
plays at The Mill in Waikari at 7pm
on Friday, April 6, and Saturday,
April 7; and at 4pm on Sunday, April
8. Tickets are $10 for adults or a gold
coin for children, and are available
at Sally Mac s in Amberley, Waikari
Auto, Hurunui College, or at the
door at The Mill, 6 Singleton St,
Waikari, on the night. Don t forget to
bring a cushion and a rug.

Route 72 -- the main road between
Rangiora and Oxford -- and will
become a regular weekly fixture
from Saturday, April 6.
Through our community survey
and feedback from market partici-
pants and visitors, we found an over-
whelming response in favour of
increasing the frequency of the mar-
ket, encouraging more food stalls
and raising visibility, says local
Kate Powell. People like the mix of
stalls we offer already, including
craft, produce, plants, car boot sales,
and opportunities for community
group promotion and fundraising,
and this will not change. We re just
looking to make it better.
