A Theatre Creative Research “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a theatre creative research which has been inspired by William Shakespeare’s play script and the translated play script ‘Fun Na Kuen Klang Ruedoo Ron’ (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) by Dudsadee Mala. This theatre creative research was presented as a stage play using teaching method called “Project-Based Learning”. The process of this theatre creative research began with interpreting the play from both English and Thai versions of A midsummer Night’s Dream. As both versions are written in the form of poetry, the play needed to be adapted into spoken language beforehand by the researchers. This theatrical production were managed and run by the students of Faculty of Management Science, Silpakorn University, Thailand.The results of the study showed that the students have gained solving problems skills, planning and time-management skills through working in different positions, such as costume design, scenery design, public relation, and so on. Moreover, they also had opportunity to learn collaboration, teamwork, and creative thinking skills, especially higher order thinking. At the end of the production, the students can make self-evaluation that lead to their improvement.
