BACKGROUND:

Perhaps Shakespeare’s most produced play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream continues to intrigue and delight audiences and performers alike. A blend of romance (“The course of true love never did run smooth”), adventure and magic, the play has been transformed into ballets, symphonies, movies and opera. Set in the 1920s at a movie studio, the Queens College production features such characters as Theseus, a strict movie mogul who dominates the studio, and warring studio divas Oberon and Titania.

The all-student cast is directed by Colorado-based director Jane Page, who currently teaches in the College’s Department of Drama, Theatre and Dance. Page has directed over 70 productions in Colorado and also directed Studio Arena Theatre in Buffalo; the Alabama and Colorado Shakespeare Festivals; Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany; Fusion Theatre in Chicago; and the Denver Center Theatre Company. Amelia Lives, an original play Page directed, garnered a Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh International Theatre Festival in Scotland. Page also works as an artist-in-residence in schools throughout Colorado.
