Waukee Theatre Arts Presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream

aMidsummersNightDreamBlue11x17v4The Waukee High School Theatre Arts Department is proud to present the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream on October 9, 10, and 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the Theatre Arts Center at Prairieview School.

This adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic comedy, written by Ken Womble, retains the passion, humor, and magic of the original script as the audience follows the timeless story of four young friends, two men and two women, who are all in love, but with the wrong people.

In an attempt to avoid the harsh Athenian law applied to the privileged royals, the four lovers escape into the surrounding forest. Complications ensue as they venture into the middle of a domestic dispute between the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania. The fantasy world becomes a chaotic mix of love potions, mistaken identities, impish spells, and magical interference.

Come enjoy an evening of Shakespearian mischief and merriment on October 9, 10, and 11 at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $6 and may be ordered online at www.seatyourself.biz/waukeetheatrearts or purchased at the door.
