A Midsummer Night's Dream...or The Night They Missed The Forest For the Trees--Performance #3


This weekend, PKR was involved in his Kellogg High School spring play. It is called "A Midsummer Night's Dream...or The Night They Missed The Forest for the Trees.





It basically tells the story of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", but also uses modern characters and story tellers to help tell the story and how it relates to teenagers today.





I was so proud of this cast. I had gone and watched the play the Monday before it opened to give the cast notes. It was amazing how far they came in five days.





PKR is very proud of these students, and the great job they did on the show.
Oberon, King of the Fairies, was portrayed by Kalvin Pemberton. Tim Wentland did a fabulous job as "Puck".
Here are the "rude-mechanicals" getting ready to rehearse their play within a play.
They are Brittany Reed, Zack Whitfield, David Carey, Bridget Cannaday, Lance Claflin and Nathan Gravelle. Ah, the two Athenian couples, Hermia, Lysander, Demetrius and Helena, played by Mariah Schlepp, Ryan Griffin, Erik Fink and Dori Liddicoat.
Alexa Mitten was Titania, Queen of the Fairies, who awakens to find she is in love with Nick Bottom, who Puck has turned into an ass.
Ally Evans , Pamela Reed and Danae Johnson were the three story tellers, and also played Duke Theseus, Hippolyta and Egeus, Hermia's father.



Some of the other fairies flitting about the forest included Corinne Estabrook, Alex Serrell, Anton Ferraro and Julia Wenzel.
