Amrit Kaler as Demetrius
In this re-imagined version of “A Midsummer Night's Dream”, Amrit Kaler acts as the love struck, aristocratic young man Demetrius. Demetrius is an Athenian citizen who was engaged with Hermia, yet Oberon’s magic love juice intervened which made him fall in love with Helena. Amrit Kaler has used his optimistic attitude and other skills such as Powerful Speech and Voice, Character Commitment, Confidence, Innate Talent, Grave Insight to display the occurrence of love through his actions and behaviour. He will have to recall his acting skills from previous mind boggling plays such as “The Polar Express” and “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” to deliver a breath taking show in front his patrons.
Tajbir Warraich as Hermia
In this famous reenactment of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" Tajbir Warraich stars as beautiful, loving Hermia. She is the disobedient daughter of Egues who does not agree to marry Demetrius rather she want to marry her true love Lysander. She is threatened by a death sentence for not obeying her father and later she fights for her love by running away with Lysander. Tajbir Warraich’s acting experience varies from acting in a short anti-bully play in grade 5 where he stars as the victim. Some of his skills include a strong & clear voice, confident speaker and he is committed to his character role.
