CHS’ ‘Dream’ production to fill Holmes courtyard
“Stir up the Athenian youth to merriments,
“Awake the pert and nimble spirit of mirth.”
- Theseus, from Act I of “A Midsummer Night's Dream,” by William Shakespeare, 1595.
Final preparations are coming together for Coronado High School's outdoor presentation of “A Midsummer Night's Dream.” After a three-act preview performance at Bristol Elementary April 30, the Shakespeare comedy classic will go before the general public in the Holmes Middle School courtyard Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, May 6-8.
Showtimes each night will be 6 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and $16 for those want to buy a ticket that includes a catered box dinner. Admission is free for young children who dress as fairies.
Other than the box lunch tickets, which must be ordered in advance, tickets can be reserved in advance at the Coronado business office or (if available) at the door.
The Holmes courtyard, decorated for the show, will become the setting for a romp that intertwines four plots, with complications arising from supernatural intervention.
“People seem to be looking forward to the outdoor show,” said Coronado drama instructor Elizabeth Kahn. “We'll have seating for 150 per night and we hope that many people come!”
The main leads are:
Puck- Zach Bengsston (Puck); Travis Hennager (Oberon); Sarah Jacobs (Titania); Griffin Swartzell (Bottom); and Michelle Witte, Bethany Hernandez, Cody Brevik and Lucas Porter (the Lovers).
