The Hillsboro High School Drama Department proudly presents Lindsay Price’s adaptation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Performances will be held in the high school cafetorium on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 10 and 11, at 7 p.m.
Based on the full length comedy by William Shakespeare, Price’s version takes its viewers through a crazy night of love spells gone wrong, fairies running amok, and a group of townsfolk who find themselves in the middle of unexplained transformation. With a cast of 23 characters, a crew of eight, two stage managers and two directors, the show promises to be a hilarious romp through an enchanted forest under the full moon’s light, the school said in a news release.
The show also kicks off Hillsboro High School’s “Hillsboro to Houston” Gift Campaign. The goal of this event is to collect Christmas presents for the students of Worthing High School in Houston, Texas. These students were particularly affected by Hurricane Harvey, and the Fine and Performing Arts Departments at HHS have made it their mission to make this holiday season a bit brighter for the teenagers of Worthing High. There will be more details to follow, but if you wish to donate a gift at the play, feel free to do so. Gifts should be appropriate for students aged 14-18.
Admission the play performances is $5 for adults and $3 for students.
