The Bethel College theatre department presents “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare, Thursday, Nov. 1 and Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center – Auditorium. Tickets are on sale now.
“Midsummer” is one of the great comedies by William Shakespeare. A complex farce, the play revolves around the adventures of four young lovers, Hermia & Lysander and Helena & Demetrius. Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated by fairies who inhabit the forest they enter. A story that will entertain young and old, Shakespeare’s comedy tells the tale of two couples who fell in love with the wrong partners, but, thanks in part to the bungling work of Puck, are finally reunited with their true love.
Purchase tickets at BethelCollege.edu/Tickets or call the ticket office at 574.807.7080, Mon.-Fri., 1-5 p.m. This performance is interpreted for the d/Deaf community on Friday, November 2. The cost is $15 for adults and $13 for students and seniors.
