A Midsummer Night’s Dream
26 June @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$14 – $20
Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a romantic comedy play that takes place in a forest inhabited by fairies. The play has four main plots that revolve around the conflicts between the fairy King and Queen, the romantic troubles among four young lovers, the comical performances by a group of amateur actors, and the transformation of Bottom the weaver into an ass. All these plots are interconnected by the central theme of love and its complexities. The play is known for its memorable characters, including Puck, the mischievous fairy, and the mortal lovers Hermia, Helena, Lysander, and Demetrius.
SCCAS’s production is being directed by Elise Hall and Hope Meffle, who are both passionate about performing. They met during SCCAS’s Chicago, and went on to star in Beauty and the Beast. Although Midsummer will be their first foray into directing, they have both performed the play and have the understanding necessary to present Shakespeare in a relatable way for both actors and audience, while still preserving the magic of the text.
Note: Monday 26th June is a preview performance with all tickets $15
