Shakespeare Meets Disco in Spring Theater Production
Published on April 22, 2010
SELINSGROVE—Susquehanna University’s Department of Theatre will present Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” April 22 to 25 at 8 p.m. at the university’s Degenstein Center Theater.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is the bard’s beloved romance about the many dimensions of love. Susquehanna’s imaginative production moves the action forward in time, casting the drama into the 1970s. Douglas Powers, professor of theatre and artistic director, explained: "The play is about love: courtly love, romantic love, sexual love and platonic love. Set to the tune of Donna Summer."
Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for non-Susquehanna University students. They can be purchased by visiting the box office in the Degenstein Center Theater lobby or by calling 570-372-ARTS. The box office is open from noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
