As is tradition at Wilmslow Prep School the Form 5 and 6 pupils delighted audiences at the end of the Summer Term with their end of year production – this year by transporting them to a dream-like world of fairies, lovers and kings.
Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is full of twists and turns.
