Let's go see this magical play in the beautiful surrounds of Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Be transported to the world of the woods beyond Athens, a place of tangled loves, mistaken identity, mischievous fairies, magic-potions and madcap fun!

Bring a rug, mozzie spray, snacks and drinks so we can enjoy a group dinner before the play starts.

Adults $35.00
Concession* $30.00
Child (15 years and under) $25.00

Show starts at 8.30pm. Lets have dinner picnic style from 7.30pm.

    Truly a charged and humourous performance! Looking forward to meeting more HSPs another time.

      Sorry, Autumn, we weren't allowed to take photos of the performance - we were told this humorously but emphatically in verse! And while there was a merry band of three of us who managed to find each other, I know others struggled hence no "group shots".

    Hey everyone! As Autumn has had to very sadly pull out, I wanted to post to offer a meeting spot as I'm aware we may not know each other at all (and I can get anxious at the thought of wandering around trying to find people!). I'm not yet sure of the layout for the theatre, but I plan to arrive at 7pm and lay out a green rattan picnic rug. I will be wearing a navy and cream striped dress and likely a boater hat! When I arrive I will post my location relative to the stage and also check to see if anyone else has settled a spot before me, wherein I will join you!

      My train must be tired after a long hot day. Looks like I'll be closer to 7:45pm

    This looks like it could be very special. Unfortunately, I had already made other plans, so won't be going.

    Unfortunately I already have plans that weekend but I hope you have a great time - it's a wonderful play in my favourite environment. Enjoy!

    Just one question before I buy a ticket: it seems that the play begins at 8:30 pm... Is the 7 pm time given above just for when people of this group are to meet for the 8:30 pm play?

      Play starts at 8.30 but I thought meet at 7 for dinner in the gardens before the play (and to score a good view of the stage)

      Have you already bought your ticket Elisa? If not can you hold off

    Hey guys! Just to let you know, it appears there has been a price increase for adult tickets - they are now $45.00 plus a $7.70 processing fee, so at $52.70 this starts to put this event a little outside my budget and I will need to wait until next payday before I purchase :/ I'd really like to come, are you able to shed light on how you were able to purchase a less expensive ticket please; did I just miss an Early-Bird boat?

      That would certainly suit me, but I am aware that it looks like others have already bought for the Saturday?

    Always meant to go see this. I have the audio CD of this play and just love the whole feel of it. Fingers crossed it is good weather - not a scorcher but not raining or freezing cold.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
