HCIS presents Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Harbor City International School will present A Midsummer Night’s Dream between Thursday, April 28 and Sunday, May 1. With the exception of the Sunday performance, which is a 2 PM Matinée, all performances are at 7 PM.  The theater is located on the second floor of the school at 332 W. Michigan St.  Admission is eight dollars for adults and three dollars for students.

Performance Description: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic comedy of William Shakespeare’s. This particular performance takes place in the 30s, with settings, costumes, and music appropriate for the time period, with a certain emphasis on jazz and blues. The play intertwines three stories — that of a group of lovers turned astray from their state, divided by their uneven interests in one another; that of a group of workers who conspire to perform a play and are beriddled with conflicts as a result of their own incompetency; and that of  a squabble between the King and Queen of the faeries, who in their fight play with the emotions of the lovers and enchant the lead performer of the laborers. All these events revolve around the marriage of Duke Theseus and the queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. The play is a comedy, renowned for its ridiculous humor and says a number of important things about the way we love and what is important in our relationships.

I'm pleased and proud to say that my son will be making an ass of himself on stage.  He's playing Bottom.
