The Montford Park Players, North Carolina’s longest running Shakespeare Festival, will open A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the second production of its 2015 outdoor season, on June 5 at 7:30 pm.
MPP is sending Big Will back to the “Old-School” in this hip-hop inspired production. Bust a move through the concrete jungle, and fall under the spell of rapping sprites, fly girl fairies, rude boy mechanicals, and funky fresh lovers. Directed by Jason Williams, director of past audience favorites such as Comedy of Errors and Merchant of Venice, this summertime fantasy promises to be another delight for audiences. The production features artwork by noted Asheville artist Dustin Spagnola, costumes by Elizabeth Evans, and choreography by Kristi DeVille. This Midsummer Night’s Dream will give audiences a fresh backspin on an old favorite.
Admission is free and donations are gratefully accepted. The production will run Friday through Sunday at 7:30 pm, June 5 through July 4 at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre, 92 Gay Street in Montford. Bring a picnic, bring your favorite beverage and bring your canine companion! Saturdays will feature MPP’s Cutest Dog Contest.
Also, on Saturday, June 20, the park will be transformed into a day-long Midsummer Faire, a treat for the whole family. Admission is free, and donations will be accepted.
