High School and South Middle School to present A Midsummer Night's Dream

Midsummer Nights Dream

The Ray-Pec Theatre Department announces its joint High School/South Middle School productions of William Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Both schools are producing their own versions of the show and will present them over the next two weekends. Both productions will perform in the Ray-Pec High School Theatre.

Ray-Pec South Middle School will present an abridged production on Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 28, at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $6. The High School will present a full-length production Thursday, May 2, Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May, 5, at 2:30 p.m. Tickets for that production are $5 for students and $7 for adults. Tickets for both shows may be reserved by calling the box office line, 892-3999 extension 2400. Free child care will be provided.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a fantastical comedy written by William Shakespeare. The plot centers around a love quadrangle, when a group of young lovers find themselves in a magical forest and become entwined with a conflict between magical beings who live there. Further complicating events is an amateur group of actors who hope to perform during the celebration festivities surrounding the upcoming wedding of Duke Theseus to the Amazonian Queen Hippolyta. As the various storylines collide in the forest, comic antics ensue as each character seeks a happy ending. Written in 1595, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has long been a popular show for theatre companies to produce.

Both productions are directed by Teacher Dane Schnake, with scenic design and technical direction by Teacher Karla Penechar. The lighting design is by Riley Linn, sound design by Nick Hime, and props designed by Molly Loman. Production assistants include Michael Connelly, Kay Connelly, Teacher Pam Schnake, and Teacher Todd Schnake.

The Ray-Pec South Middle School company includes the talents of Alia Abdelgawad, Mia Abnos, Opemipo Precious Adeyemo, Jaxson Anderson, Lindzi Ash, Carter Blackwell, Johnathan Badowski, Ellie Barker, Andrew Burton, Elizabeth Burton, Jacee Campos, Ryan Canon, Sophia Clapp, Maryn Clausing, Jonah Craig, Connor Cranston, Ashley Davis, Ember Davis, Madeline Dawson, Rory Day, Kai Eastwood, Ethan Floyd, Maya Freeman, John Freidline, Sarah Freidline, Gwyn Hawk, Christyn Hill, Veronica Gibbs, Maddie Goodpaster, Hannah Jackson, Zoey Johannes, Chloe Killingsworth, Mariah Kingman, Ava Kirkpatrick, Lottie Kirkpatrick, Jenna Krueger, Janet Lakey, Carter Link, Josh Lopez, Molly Malone, Patrick Martin, Mia Mikulicz, Zavier Mills, Aspen Moeschler, Amelia Morris, James Moss, Peyton Neeman, Keylee Noel, Nigel Norvell, Elijah O’Brien, Hannah Oldham, Owen Phillips, Abby Ragsdale, Ezra Robertson, Maely Robbins, Bradley Shepard, Clarinda Shoemaker, Jocelyn Smith, Ally Stewart, Katie Stewart, Audrey Taylor, Lexie Thomas, Thatcher Woodson, and Aidan York.
