Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream rolls on stage at Transylvania for six performances

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Transylvania opens its 2006-07 theater season with Shakespeare’s romantic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Thursday, November 2, in the Lucille C. Little Theater. This classic tale of fairies and mismatched lovers, which has become one of Shakespeare’s most popular works, runs November 2-3 and 9-11 at 7:30 p.m., and November 4-5 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, written sometime in the mid-1590s, follows an original plotline in which several characters face difficulties in the form of social hierarchy, artistic license, love and magical fairies. The play follows Lysander and Hermia, two lovers torn apart by Hermia’s engagement to Demetrius. The two agree to elope, but their plan is foiled when Helena, a woman in love with Demetrius, informs him of the plot. The resulting confusion is intensified by the involvement of kindhearted woodland fairies, whose antics ultimately bring about a happy ending for everyone. This classic comedy is directed by Tim Soulis, drama program director and professor of drama. 

Call (859) 233-8141 for more information, and (859) 281-3621 for tickets.
