Midsummer Night's Dream at ECU--Tuesday, November 2nd

On Tuesday November 2nd at 7:30pm Aquila Theatre will present Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center Ataloa Theatre. This timeless comedy has delighted audiences for centuries, and Aquila’s imaginative interpretation will renew the magic of Shakespeare’s plot. Set against a classical Athenian backdrop, A Midsummer Night’s Dream deals with the universal theme of love, and its attendant complications: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion, and, of course, marriage.
 Aquila’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been praised by The New York Times as “Timely and pleasing...this “Dream” soothes the eye and tickles the funny bone”. Aquila’s comedic mastery, physical ensemble techniques, and proven successes with their critically acclaimed productions of Shakespeare promise that this will be a Dream you won’t soon forget.
   Tickets are $18 for adults, and $15 for ECU Faculty, Staff & Students. Tickets may be purchased in advance by credit card at the ECU Bursar’s Office or at the HBFFAC Ticket Booth starting at 6pm the night of the performance.  Reservations are recommended. There is a free pre-performance discussion at 6:30pm in the Chalmers Herman theatre.
