SHAKESPEARE IN HOLLYWOOD
June 14 - June 29
One could hardly call this a typical Shakespeare play. Cameras are rolling on the 1930’s Hollywood set of A Mid Summer Night’s Dream. Actors are in place and German director, Max Reinhardt, is barking direction at them. During the commotion, who should appear on scene but Shakespeare’s very own characters, Oberon and Puck! The film actors not only find themselves switching in and out of scenes with the jesters, but also discover that the real Puck has found a way to utilize his love potion! What else will this otherworldly encounter have in store for them?
