A Midsummer Night's Dream

YC Spring Theatre Opens February 24th

One of Shakespeare’s most popular and fantastic works, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an unforgettable tale of love, magic, and mischief set in a mystical forest.  The fantastic tale focuses on four young people (Hermia, Helena, Lysander, Demetrius), all of whom are pining after one of the others in the group, and all of whom end up in the forest together on a midsummer night.  Through some intervening of well-intentioned fairies and the not-so-well-intentioned Oberon and Titania, the four young lovers wind up in a whirlwind of changing minds, broken hearts, giddy triumphs, and finally- love restored.  Through all of this, Oberon and Titania battle it out and use the other fairies, as well as some amateur thespians, to suit their own purposes.  As in many of Shakespeare’s comedies, all ends well and happily, and Puck, in a tender epilogue, reminds the audience that it may have been all a dream.

The York College theatre's spring production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, abridged by Cara Gerlock, will run February 24-27 in Gurganus Hall (10th & Kiplinger), with showings on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m. 

Tickets are $6 adults / $4 seniors & students. Reservations can be made by calling the York College Box Office at 402-363-5641 or by email.
