Catch the final two nights of The Midsummer Carnival at Brisbane Powerhouse

The Midsummer Carnival

If you’re a fan of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and enjoy unique story-telling, this immersive theatrical experience is definitely calling your name.

The Brisbane Immersive Ensemble – the same geniuses who created Cluedo: The Interactive Game – has delivered a brilliant adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous comedic play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and we are totally here for it.

Lean into the world of magic and fairies as you become an active participant in the carnivalesque world that will sweep you up from the minute you arrive. Carried out across multiple spaces, guests will be nothing short of entertained with circus stunts, sideshow antics, carnival games, sword swallowers, acrobats and tantalising burlesque. This is sure to be an experience you won’t forget.

The Midsummer Carnival kicked off at the Stores Building at Brisbane Powerhouse on January 24 and the curtains will close for the final time this Saturday evening. Luckily, tickets are still available for both the 6.30pm and 8.30pm shows this Friday and Saturday, February 7 and 8. But you better get in quick!

Please note: The Brisbane Powerhouse car park is currently closed for refurbishment until February 21.
