For its final play of the 2010-2011 theater season, the Valencia Character Company will present William Shakespeare’s classic comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Showtimes are June 9-11 and June 16-18 at 7:30 p.m. and June 12 and 19 at 2 p.m. in the Black Box Theater at Valencia College’s East Campus.
Silly, magical, funny, romantic and mystical, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is one of the Bard’s most often produced plays. It follows the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors who are manipulated by the fairies inhabiting a moonlit forest. Valencia’s interpretation will be fairly traditional, exploring love as a sometimes-irrational facet of life that often seems beyond our control.
The production will be directed by Valencia’s artistic director Julia Gagne and designed by Valencia theater professor Michael Shugg.
Ticket prices are $10 for general admission and $8 for students, seniors and Valencia staff and alumni. Complimentary tickets are offered to Valencia students. Valencia’s East Campus is located at 701 N. Econlockhatchee Trail in Orlando. Seating is limited in the Black Box Theater, so advance ticket purchase is suggested and latecomers may not be seated until intermission.
