American Shakespeare Center presents A Midsummer Night's Dream (Student Show)
Back by popular demand, the American Shakespeare Center returns to FestivALL Fall, this time with their production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. In this production, Shakespeare casts a theatrical spell powerful enough to make audiences of all ages believe in anything. This mischievous comedy of lovers, heroes, fairies, and rude mechanicals is his tribute to humankind's power of imagination, and reveals that the "course of true love" can alter with just one touch of magic.
The American Shakespeare Center’s unique performance style blends Shakespeare’s stage craft with modern sensibility. Described as “shamelessly entertaining” by The Washington Post, this award-winning company follows the basic principles of a Renaissance theatrical production to give its audiences a fully lit and interactive experience.
Tickets: $5 per student with 1 free chaperone per 10 students. Ticket assistance and lunch options are available.
For RESERVATIONS Please call the Clay Center Box Office at (304) 561-3570
Doors open at 9:30am, show runs from 10-11:30am. Please plan to allow time for the transition to exit the theater.
