THE SHAKESPEARE UNDERGROUND
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
May 6, 2017
Doors @ 8pm
Notes @ Copious
520 S. High St.
The Shakespeare Underground is a new project designed to explore classic plays written by a variety of authors. We decided to kick off the series with this unique combination of commedia street theater and traditional Elizabethan stage methods. Give us your hands, if we be friends, and Actors’ shall restore amends.
On May 5th, ATC will gather together 12 actors, a director, and a stage manager. The actors will be assigned roles by random drawing. They will receive their lines only (and maybe a phrase to cue them). 24 hours later, at 8pm on May 6th, the doors will open, the lights will go up, and anything could happen. We’re hoping it will be the funniest production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that you’ve ever seen, but you’ll have to be there to find out. ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Admission is on a “pay what you will” basis with complimentary seating available for current ATC members. Members must RSVP for reserved seating.
