A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the Academy of Children’s Theatre
One of literature’s greatest works, by no less than the greatest English writer of all time, William Shakespeare, will be given a 20th century approach by the drama students of the Academy of Children’s Theatre.
Shakespeare for the 20th Century
ACT’s production will take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, setting it in 1967 during San Francisco’s Summer of Love. The story will follow the adventures of a spirited but mischievous fairy, Puck, who pulls on all sorts of hilarious antics that intentionally and unintentionally complicate the other characters, which include Oberon, Titania, Hermia, Helena, Lysander, Demetrius, Egeus, Theseus, Hippolyta and Bottom.
Show Times and Tickets
The production will be staged at ACT Black Box Theatre, 213 Wellsian Way in Richland. Show times are 7PM on January 31 and February 1, with a 3PM matinee on February 1. Admission is $13 for adults, $10 for ages 13 to 18, and $7 for ages 12 and younger. You may purchase your tickets online, but you will get your tickets from the ticket booth on the day of the performance (please note that tickets will be taken offline Friday noon for each weekend). Tickets will also be made available at the box office an hour before the actual performance. For inquiries, you may call the ACT office at (509) 943-6027.
