OBERON High School's English faculty was lucky enough to secure a number of tickets to a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Thirty-two students, accompanied by Miss McTrustry, Ms Cook and Ms Stevens, sat in the front three rows at The Seymour Centre in Sydney.

These great seats, coupled with some audience involvement and cast acknowledgement of Oberon being from the play, excited the students and ensured engagement with the production.

"I always enjoy going to see Shakespeare live," Year 12 student Emily Henby said.

"It holds this magic you just don't see while reading the play. My favourite character was Puck the fae (fairy). His mischievous attitude always gives us a fun and new perspective on the things going on in A Midsummer Night's Dream.

"I loved the play and would happily go again."

Emily and all the students really enjoyed the performance.

Many thanks to Miss McTrustry for giving these lucky students this opportunity to witness a live performance of such a classic Shakespearean comedy.
