This semester, on Wednesday May 25th, Drama Club will be performing the very first Alta Vista Shakespeare production – A Midsummer Night’s Dream! This beloved play features themes of love, magic and mischief. In our abridged version, we will be telling the tale of young Athenian folks chasing love through a magical fairy-filled forest. All the while, a silly, yet talented, acting troupe practices its skills to present to the royal Athenian family. Midsummer is the perfect starting point for our young actors as they explore the comedy, language, movement, story-within-a-story style (Mr. Shakespeare used so often), and the unique challenge of performing in the round.
