A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be presented at Northern Lights Estate Winery this summer by a group of local artists.
This Shakespearean production is adapted and directed by Melissa Glover, one of the artists in residents at Theatre NorthWest that is supporting the play.
“I am setting the piece in 1950s Athens Georgia,” Glover said. “I wanted to do something fun while still honouring the original story. The language will still be Shakespeare’s beautiful prose. The 1950s is a fascinating time period to play with as you are coming out of the Second World War and people’s identities were really beginning to shift. At the heart of this story is love and all that can encompass."
This production will feature an all-local cast and crew.
“I am beyond excited to be on stage again,” Sandra Clermont said, who will play Theseus and Mustardseed during the production. “Covid-19 has been hard on the arts and getting back into things is what we all need. I hope the community comes out to see us!”
A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be presented June 9 to 12 at 7 p.m. with matinees at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Northern Lights Orchard View Amphitheatre, 745 Prince George Pulp Mill Road.
Tickets are available online at Theatre NorthWest Midsummer Night's Dream or in person at Studio 2880, 2880 15th Ave.
