Actor's Repertory Theatre of Simi presents Literature in Action's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," William Shakespeare's most popular comedy. Written around 1594 or 95, the story portrays the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who's transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves. This work is widely performed around the world, and no wonder - it's about the world's most popular pastime, falling in love. But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all. A Midsummer Night's Dream is sponsored in part by the Simi Valley Rotary club, the Simi Valley Arts Commission and is directed by Eric Stein, produced by Jan Glasband, and costumed by Cynthia Caldwell. Performances are at 7:00pm in the intimate DownStage Theater at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center, on April 28, 29, 30 and May 5, 6, and 7. Tickets are $12 for Adults and $10 for Students 12 and Seniors. Please arrive by 6:45pm to be seated.
