Educational Series: A Midsummer Night’s Dream
This daytime show is designed for grades 8 – 12
Performances at 10 AM
Runtime 120 minutes.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595/96. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta (the former queen of the Amazons). These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage!
The American Shakespeare Center on Tour delivers seriously fun Shakespeare to audiences at performing arts centers, universities, and selective high schools throughout the U.S. ASC on Tour invites audiences to enjoy shows that are produced as Shakespeare’s company performed them – surrounded by audience members who share the same light with the actors, each of whom play multiple roles. This highly interactive style allows ASC on Tour to forge a sense of community between performers and audience rarely found in theatre today and enables audiences to understand and enjoy these classic works.
This activity is supported by the MICHIGAN COUNCIL FOR ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS, the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS, the LSSU Charter School Office, the Fund for LSSU and the Issues and Intellect Fund.
Tickets are $4.00 per student.
