Another spring production by NightOwl Theatre. After the fall production of Laremy Project, this Neal Facey rendition of Midsummer Night’s Dream illustrates the diverse skills and attributes of a great education program! – Al Smith
For anyone who wants to take in a great show, check out Night Owl Theatre’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” playing in our school theatre this week. Neal’s students impress again with this tidy rendition of one of Shakespeare’s most famous comedies.
All of the students give strong performances but Isabella and Brett absolutely shine as Puck and Nick Bottom, respectively. Jamie also stands out with her fresh and hilarious version of Helena.The costumes, choreography and props are perfectly suited and the 80’s soundtrack will have you reach for a poofie hairdo or don a blouse with cardboard shoulders. (At the very least, you will go home and hunt for the music of Wham and give them another listen)
“Bottom” Line: this is a strong cast doing a fab rendition of a Shakespearian classic.
Surprisingly, Facey’s crew achieves the virtually impossible: taking an unnecessarily convoluted, improbable and sometimes confusing script and making it perfectly accessible to an audience of all ages. Very well done!
The play is on this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:30 pm.
Of course you are too busy to attend, but this is the kind of event that makes you proud to be involved in the education field. And let’s face it –in this current political climate, who could not benefit from such a reminder? – Mr. M
