A Midsummer Night's Dream

Directed by Robert S. Currier

1996 Season - Midsummer Night's Dream and Peter Pan




Producer’s Perspective:

After waiting five years to mount our first production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, we couldn’t stand the pressure of the many calls -- from board members, audience members, and would-be audience members who had missed the 1994 production -- to stage a revival of that award-winning delight. We’re only human; and as Puck reminds us: “Lord, what fools these mortals be!” Perhaps we were under a magical spell.

Jeff Raz and Diane Wasnak returned, along with a new crew of clowns and acrobats. There were many changes, but the original production’s magic remained, refined in places, and arguably better than ever. Bruce Lackovic, in his first of many seasons with us, produced a splendid set design that worked for both of the summer’s productions. The show was once again a true delight and a great audience-pleaser.
