Sierra Stages to present “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” this spring
Sierra Stages will present this magical comedy from February 28 through March 23 at the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City. The director is Jac Royce. The creative staff includes Mike Edwards (set design), Sharon Olson (costume design) and Erin Beatie (lighting design).
Spells are cast, lovers are fooled and revelry flourishes as worlds collide in Shakespeare’s imaginative comedy. On a night when anything can happen, young lovers rouse their mischievous curiosity of fairies, which use their charm to lead the couple into a playful midnight frolic through the forest.
In the midst of it all, an acting troupe gets caught up in the chaos when a magic spell turns their leading man into a donkey. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” blurs the line between magic and reality, leading to a night so fantastical you have to dream it to believe it.
