Visitors to Dalkeith Country Park experienced ‘Shakespeare with a difference’ on Saturday, when the Lyceum Youth Theatre put on a special adaption of the bard’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The play, titled ‘A Midlothian Night’s Dream’, featured performances by budding young thespians from throughout the local community.

Offering weekly drama sessions as well as a range of other projects, workshops and performances, the Lyceum Youth Theatre has enabled thousands of young people aged between five and 18 to get involved in drama.

Recognised as a source of young talent, it is regularly approached by casting agencies for film and television productions.
