A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Opens TONIGHT

You are all cordially invited to attend the BHS Drama Club’s performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by William Shakespeare. Students have been working hard since September, and they would love to see their teachers, administrators and coaches in the audience! We even added a matinee this year, in case the evening performances aren’t convenient.

Shows are tonight at 7:30 pm and Saturday, December 15 at 2:00 and 7:30 pm, in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center of Burlington High School.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream features young lovers who fall comically in and out of love in a ridiculously brief period of time (a single, “enchanted” midsummer night)! Written in the late 16th century, it remains one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage. A modern interpretation of the original, the BHS production will maintain Shakespeare’s written word but will leap centuries to the present day, reflected in updated music, costumes and actions.

The student cast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream includes TJ Horgan as Puck, Marissa Cote as Titania (Queen of the Fairies), Anthony Cruz as Oberon (King of the Fairies), Mike Garcia as Theseus, Rachel Seeley as Hermia, Joram Coichy as Lysander, Katrina Gilstrap as Helena, Chris Cote as Demetrius and Tommy Bezreh as Bottom, the Senior.

Also included in the cast are Nicollette Moodie as Hippolyta, Theseus’s fiancée, Holly Brouillette as Marigold, the Fairy Leader, Sarah Burnham as Quince, Timmy Sullivan as Flute, Kara Amuzzini as Starveling, Xavier Little as Snout, Dora Kadish as Snug, Sherif Mehdi as Egeus, August Kaminski as Philostrate, Samantha Hovasse as Mustardseed, Miranda Russo as Cobweb, Emma Saltsman as Moth, and Sarah Iler as Peaseblossom. Ensemble members include Patrick Hoarty, Sarah Jamal-Eddine, Marisa Lee, Lauren Schissler, and Sharleen Varghese.

The artistic team includes Anne Ford as director, John Middleton-Cox as producer, Peter Waldren as set designer, and Maureen Krebs (The Costume Room) as costume designer.

Tickets are priced at $5 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults.
