During Nov. 19-21, The Upper School will be showing their comedic production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
Off to a late start because of MUS’ October musical production of “Sweney Todd,” the actors have been putting in lots of time into this play, giving it their all.
The passionate thespians that compose the cast of the play have been working hard for the past four weeks. Rehearsals started out being around two hours and increased to about four hours of rehearsing during tech week.
In terms of what to expect, the production is the abridged version of the play and will be solely one act with no intermission.
Performing Arts Director Mrs. Madden said, “The play allows students the opportunity to handle the language, but also not get too overwhelmed by the language… The shortness of [the play] makes it palpable for both the actor and the audience.”
Stage Manager Maeve Karnes (12) said, “I think it’s hilarious. The comedy is on point.”
Not only will it be an enchanting experience for all who attend, but the freshmen will receive extra credit, as the play is read and discussed throughout freshmen year English class.
Whether or not you are familiar with a fairy queen falling in love with a donkey or the chaotic love-potion-induced love triangle, you should make time in your weekend to see your classmates shine on the Buckman Stage.
