What you need to do for your chance win:

  1. Practice makes perfect

Assemble your class, prepare and rehearse to film Act 5, Scene 1 from A Midsummer Night’s Dream (see further information overleaf). Add characters, set the time, location, or theme for your scene and most importantly—have fun! The world’s a stage and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  1. Lights, Camera, Action!
