A Midsummer Night's DreamWritten by William Shakespeare
Directed by Bill Fennelly
Co-produced with SU Drama
In Shakespeare's hands, magic and romance and the very midsummer madness make for intoxication, enchantment, and rollicking, frolicking comedy. Get on your mud boots and your donkey ears, cause it's off to the woods with four eager, young lovers, a band of hapless rustics, and rival camps of puckish sprites.
"A wonderful staging of the play that is at once new and interesting, accessible yet challenging." --Malkiel Choseed, CNY Cafe Momus
"[Bill] Fennelly's production is cleverly mocking itself, and having a rollicking time at it." --Eesha Patkar, Green Room Reviews
"One of the best things about this production is the way that the gorgeous sets (Andrew Boyce), costumes (Jessica Ford), sound (Fitz Patton) and lighting (Thom Weaver) blend realism with the supernatural." Neil Novelli, The Post-Standard
