In my opinion, Shakespeare plays are some of the more difficult productions to perform. You need a certain balance of proper casting and proper delivery to pull off the brilliance of his work, and if your cast isn’t up to the challenge the whole thing can come across as a cheesy “middle school level” drama of Romeo and Juliet. HOWEVER, when you get it right… the production sings! And this year’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by Cornerstone University knocks it out of the park.
With a fantastic and creative set, the stage was filled with a brilliant cast who never fail to deliver. The performances of each unique actor were performed perfectly for their roles and each performer seemed to know just how much energy was needed to deliver each line. It never feels scripted, or memorized… but rather “Performed” throughout the entire play which is often a challenge with Shakespeare’s work when delivered in our time.
With a sizable cast including many ages of younger children, this play will make you laugh, sit on the edge of your seat and hold your attention the entire time. If you are looking for a great family friendly show to attend, please check out this play. For more information, click here.
Below are some of the highlights I photographed yesterday. I decided for the sake of “getting the word out” that I’d post this as fast as possible and not take the time to edit out all the mic’s on the actors (especially since I had so many favorites I wanted to post). 🙂
