About A Midsummer Night's Dream

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 and is widely performed across the world.

Advanced Theatre Production students further their study of theatrical production through the experience of creating a number of productions from inspiration through to closing night. Design concepts will grow into practical fabrication of costumes, sets, and props, and progress into the technical running of performances. Alongside, acting techniques will take center stage as rolls will be cast, rehearsed, and performed in a number of theatrical styles and local venues. Students ready themselves to be cast or crew at a theater festival, a fully realized play, the school's spring musical, and in a local tour to bring the performing arts to kids.
