Young Actors Guild presents A Midsummer Night's Dream
Friday, November 11, 2016 at 7 pm and Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 7 pm

"A Midsummer Night's Dream" deals with the universal theme of love and its complications: lust, disappointment, confusion, marriage. The plot focuses on three parallel stories: the trials and experiences of two sets of lovers camping in a magical forest, the world of the Fairy King and Queen and their elves, and a group of rough craftsmen attempting to stage a production of "Pyramus and Thisby" for the wedding of the Duke of Athens.

Hermia is in love with Lysander, but her father wants her to marry Demetrius. To escape the arranged marriage, she and Lysander elope into the woods. Demetrius follows them, and he is pursued by Helena, who nurses an unrequited passion for him. A love quadrangle develops among the young lovers when mischievous Puck plays Cupid. "The course of true love never did run smooth," says Lysander. Meanwhile, a group of amateur actors rehearses a badly-written play in the woods, and soon all find their lives changed by the doings of Oberon and Titania, the warring king and queen of the fairies. Magic, action, love and humor are the ingredients for this unforgettable spell. This production is co-directed by Jennifer Meekins and Audra Littleton and with assistant Dustin McHale; all who are residents of Clayton, Delaware.

YAG participants: Thaddeus Balcerak, Madalynne Balcerak, Lily Barkus, Andy DelleDonne, Grace Ezell, Carter Gorham, Annabelle Littleton, Briley Shahan, and Hailey Rees met consistently over the summer of 2016 to review, re-write, and format the script for the organization's fall production. The mission of The Young Actors Guild, Inc., is to provide children with opportunities to participate in all areas of the theater arts. The organization encourages its students to get involved in the different aspects of theater through playwriting, student director opportunities, earning leadership roles through costumes, lights and sound, and stage management as well. Organization leaders all agree that this allows the students to remain interested throughout the rehearsal period, earn experience in a leadership role, and gain experience in the aspects of theater that pique the interest of the student.

Doors will open at 6:15pm.

This program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.  The Division promotes Delaware arts events on www.DelawareScene.com.
