Marist Theatre & MCCTA to Stage Midsummer Night's Dream
Warm summer breezes will waft across Nelly Goletti Theatre in late October as the Marist Theatre Program and Marist College Club of Theatre Arts stage their production of William Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream. Directed by Marist alumnus and Director of Technical Theatre Jim Steinmeyer and featuring stage design by Associate Professor of English Eileen Curley, the show will run from October 27, 28, & 29 at 8:00 p.m. and October 30 at 2:00 p.m. A special performance for area middle school and high school students will take place on Thursday, Oct. 27.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy filled to the brim with lovers, fairies, and fantasy. As lovers Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius, and Helena leave Athens and enter the forest, confusion and misadventure occur at the hands of Puck and the fairies. Ending with a wedding of all weddings and a play within a play, Shakespeare's wit, poetry, and creativity are paramount in this romantic tale. The timeless comedy is sure to entice a few laughs and charm you into believing all the mayhem was just a dream.
