The Costume Designer for A Midsummer Night's Dream is Carolyn Taylor-Smith and the Costume Design Assistant is Angela Ratcliffe, a second year stage management and technical production student.
A Midsummer Night's Dream has an eclectic design with a modern twist. The design is three worlds within one. There is the Fairy Realm, which is mystical, earthy and ethereal. The Human Realm, which is romantic, with human elements such as lovers (red and white) and the Mechanicals Realm, which is the 'actors', who are comical, with 1930's vaudeville design with stripes, big collars and cuffs.
The Midsummer Night's Dream set is designed by Chris Willems, Lecturer in Design and Performance for Stage and Screen in USQ's Faculty of Arts.
The design is as magical as possible for the audience so that they can engage with the story to be surprised and delighted. The atmosphere has a stylized look that can change in many ways. The audience has the chance to imagine and explore the beauty of Shakespearean Theatre.
The Lighting Designer is second year Stage Management and Technical Production student, Kallan Roi. His vision for the production is to amalgamate the ideas of each of the creatives to ensure a complimentary lighting design for the show. There are moving lights with flowers and specials for the King and Queen throughout the play. As well as fairy lights and special effects which make each character identifiable to the audience. For example, the King and Queen are represented by purple lights with pink and green. Lighting is also used to reflect the mood of certain characters.
