A Midsummer Night’s Dream for Kids written by Lois Burdett.
Hermia loves Lysander, but her father wants her to marry Demetrius-who’s also the heartthrob of her best friend, Helena. Threatened with death or a convent if she doesn’t do what Daddy wants, Hermia and Lysander head for the woods. With Helena and Demetrius in pursuit, they run right into a magical free-for-all between Oberon, the Fairy King, and Titania, his Fairy Queen.
This family-friendly and accessible musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic is written in rhyming couplets and performed by STC School of the Arts Pre-Professional Ensemble
and Young Professionals Conservatory students.
This Pre-Professional Ensemble program serves students ages 7 to 13 and culminates in a full-length production on STC’s stages. These workshops, taught by professional directors & actors, offer students the experience of participating in a fully-produced play with sets, costumes, and lighting, as well as performance and collaboration skills as they work together to tell great stories.
