Directed by Kory Helmick and Co-directed & Production Managed by Joanna Berner, starring Brian Cook, Jesse Riggs, Kenny Riffe, Lane Heffner, Taylor Shaffer, Brittany Hall, Justin Kelly, and Shandi Pritt, William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream: the Musical” is a tale of intertwined lovers. Hermia is in love with Lysander. Demetrius is in love with Hermia. Helena is in love with Demetrius. The four end up lost in an unfamiliar place where Oberon, King of the Fairies, and Titania, Queen of the Fairies, are in the midst of their own love spat. Oberon sends Puck, the King’s comical servant, to acquire a magical flower, the juice of which can be used to make people fall in love. Puck, once sent to do his “cupidly” duties, makes a mess of everything- causing one wrong love affair after another: Titania to a goofey actor named, Bottom, Lysander and Demetrius to Helena, and so on. Now set to a contemporary 80s rock and pop-rock score, William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream: the Musical” will have you singing in your seats and is a ton of fun for the whole family!
