The Arches Theatre: A Midsummer Night's Dream Cast Announced

The Etcetera Theatre Company (Etc) has announced its fantastic local cast for its production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream ...

Who is playing the King and Queen of the Fairies? Who is taking on the roles of the quartet of confused lovers? And who is playing the mischief-making Puck?

Let’s meet the cast:

- Theseus - Stephen Johnson
- Hippolyta - Sarah Marshall
- Philostrate - Roger Mann
- Egeus - Faisal Mohiuddin
- Hermia - Charlotte Pask
- Demetrius - Nat Gibbard
- Lysander - Michael Hutchinson
- Helena - Stacy Wilkinson
- Peter Quince - Pete Swallow
- Nick Bottom - Ben Dards
- Francis Flute - Jordan Murphy
- Robin Starveling - Faisal Mohiuddin
- Tom Snout - David Pibworth
- Snug - Howard “H” Potten
- A mischievous sprite - John Drinkwater
- King of the Fairies - Carl Defriend
- Queen of the Fairies - Susan Lee Burton
- A Fairy - Sam Bradford

What a fantastic line-up! All made up from talented local actors.

For those who have seen productions from in and around Milton Keynes over the years - perhaps a previous Etc performance, the MKTOC production The Arches last year, shows from Company MK or MKAOS - I’m sure you will recognise some of these names. You may have noticed that I too have a small role. I’m playing the part of Tom Snout, one of the mechanicals who is a rather foolish fellow!

"Director John Drinkwater will bring this classic, comic and magical play to life at our outdoor theatre this summer. This is one performance not to miss!"

To find out more about the play and to book your tickets, please visit and if you'd like the opportunity of becoming a fairy and being on our open-air stage with the cast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, then Etc it looking for a couple of Fairies to join the team! If you are interested, please get in touch with me and I look forward to seeing you this summer at The Arches Theatre.
