Macie Barrington will star as Jack in a performance of The Dreaming at the Lichfield Garrick theatre in Staffordshire.

The ten-year-old is part of a cast and crew made up entirely of volunteers for the performance of the musical version of Shakespeare’s a Midsummer Night’s Dream, which is being produced by the Garrick’s artistic director Tim Ford.

The theatre isn’t unfamiliar for Macie who appeared in the chorus of the Sleeping Beauty pantomime there.

She said: “I had no idea that I would be asked to play Jack as it is my first acting role, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

“I literally can’t keep still and I love to dance around and sing. Recently though, my head has been constantly in my script and I have been singing all of the amazing songs from this weird and wonderful play.”

Tickets for the show, which runs from July 31st to August 5th are available from the Lichfield Garrick website or by calling 01543 412121.
