Shakespeare is alive and well with the Theatre Adventure Thursday Troupe! Their spring production, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” promises to be an unforgettable experience for audiences and performers alike, as the company continues to discover the rhythmic language and outrageous storylines of the famous Bard. The actors have truly embraced their characters from “the inside out”: Egeus embodies the emotions of a father betrayed by his daughter Hermia, while Hermia grapples with being both the headstrong daughter standing up to her father, and the young woman hopelessly in love. Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, heads the Court with wisdom and sympathy, and Demetrius, played by three actors, presents all of his various conflicting emotions with truth and feeling. Bottom, played by two actors, skillfully uses pantomime as the clown of the story, and of course, Puck, Oberon, Titania, and several other fairies bring magic and whimsy to this unforgettable tale.
