The cast includes Melody Brown as Patience Snout, Sam Glen as Francis Flute, Kerry Frampton as Nicholas Bottom, and Jamal Franklin as Peter Quince.
Lucy Cuthbertson and Kerry Frampton direct Midsummer Mechanicals, which is an original piece by Frampton and Ben Hales. The show features design by Rose Revitt and costumes by Sabia Smith.
