“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” Comes to Wesleyan
The curtain will raise on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream November 12-14, 2015 at West Virginia Wesleyan College in the Culpepper Auditorium of the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts. Show times are 8 p.m. with a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee.
A Midsummer Night's Dream, William Shakespeare's most popular comedy, was written in the late 1500s and portrays the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies, and a duke and duchess. Taking place in mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who's transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites, and elves. It is no wonder that this work is widely performed around the world because it is about falling in love, the world's most popular pastime. But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all.
However if traditional Shakespear does not appeal to you, fear thee not as this production, under the direction of James Ricks, is set in the 1950s.
Tickets are $3 with a WVWC student ID, $5 for seniors, and $7 for adults.
