2024: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM by William Shakespeare

Directed by Education Director Elana Kepner

The Teen Touring Company is a unique opportunity for actors aged 12 – 19
to create and tour a Shakespeare play to schools, senior centers and community
organizations.  Students work with a professional director and dive into conservatory-style rehearsal and training in voice and text work, acting and movement. This year, we are producing A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a raucous comedy where the world is topsy-turvy and magic makes fools of everyone.
