|The classic Shakespearean play runs intermittently from Nov. 9-18.|
Mythical creatures and lovers run amok Nov. 9-18 in the Cal Poly Pomona production of the Shakespearean classic, A Midsummer Nights Dream.
Written at the end of the 16th century, this classic romantic comedy follows four lovers and a group of thespians on a fantasy adventure. Their journey into a moonlit forest is accompanied with an assortment of characters including royalty, nymphs and other mythical creatures.
“Midsummer is a magical mystery tour of lovers and their romp through a magical woods,” says director Linda Bisesti, acting and vocal professor. “Shakespeare is timeless and [this play] is great for actors to work on because it makes them deal with language and breathing.”
The play will be staged in the University Theatre at 8 p.m. Nov. 9-10 and Nov. 15-17. There will be two 10 a.m. matinees Nov. 13-14, and a closing matinee at 2 p.m. on Nov. 18.
Tickets are $10 students, staff and faculty with ID. For more information, call the Theatre Box Office at (909) 869-3800 or visit https://www.class.cpp.edu/th/index.html.
