A Midsummer Night’s Dream
28 Nov, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until 7 Dec, 2014
A pint-sized Puck, diminutive Demetrius and tall Titania are among the many characters in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream being brought to life by The Drama Club, IntotheMask Theatre’s youth drama class.
Presented by Phoenix Theatre and directed by youth coordinator and teacher Alethea Bevilacqua, the 50-minute version has been adapted for the students and combines the seriousness of power and love with the silliness of magic and mayhem.
The light-hearted Shakespeare comedy follows four young lovers and a group of actors and their interactions with woodland fairies and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and enchanted forest, the story also features a handsome fairy king and queen, star-crossed lovers, wood sprites, elves and a weaver transformed into a half-donkey.
The piece has been shortened to 50 minutes and is performed by students of The Drama Club
