South Texas College Theatre will conclude the spring 2014 season with its production of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to commemorate the bard’s anniversary. The production will run Friday and Saturday, May 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 4, at 2 p.m., at Cooper Center Black Box Theater on the Pecan campus in McAllen.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the tale of a quartet of mismatched lovers and a gaggle of hapless actors that cross paths with the king and queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. A wondrous forest brimming with possibilities sets the scene for Shakespeare’s spectacular tale, exploring the inexplicable magic of falling in love and the wonder of waking up from the sweetest of dreams.
General admission tickets cost $5. The May 4 performance will be interpreted in American Sign Language by interns from STC’s Interpreting Training Program.
