How about a little summer in your fall?
Park Square Theatre, which has operated a major education program for decades, is bringing back “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” for student groups, starting on Nov. 16 and continuing through mid-December. These are daytime performances attended by kids arriving on buses as part of field trips.
But the general public can see one of four performances that are being offered Nov. 18, 20, 27 (each at 7:30 p.m.) and Nov. 28 at 2 p.m.
This is the third student staging of the play by Park Square and director Jef Hall-Flavin, following runs in 2006 and 2008. It’s a traditional version, though not a Renaissance setting, with a lot of double- and triple-casting to carry all the roles.
If you need a final spin with summertime Shakespeare, now’s your chance. Or it could be an opportunity to prepare yourself for an after-school conversation with your kids. Go here for tickets and details.
