A Midterm Eve’s Phantasm
Audiences will love this madcap, modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Denny, the captain of the football team, has his sights set on taking Mia to Stratford High’s spring dance, but Mia has fallen head over heels in love with Lyle, a new student with a shady reputation. Determined to break up the couple, Mia’s father makes plans to send Mia away to live with her aunt. Not wanting to be separated, Mia and Lyle decide to meet that night at the park and run away together. However, the unsuspecting couple encounter a band of trouble-making fairies that have congregated at the park and are eager to create a bit of mischief. Chaos ensues when Puck, an impish sprite, casts a spell causing the fairy queen to fall in love with a student actor who has been transformed into a donkey. And to make matters worse, Puck casts a spell that makes both Denny and Lyle fall madly in love with Mia’s best friend. After all, “The course of true love never did run smooth”!
