Merry and tragical! tedious and brief! —Theseus

On May 18, the New Providence Music Boosters will sponsor a production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream by The educational touring wing of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. Shakespeare LIVE! has performed for more than 600,000 students in New Jersey, New York, and beyond. Since its inception in 1997, its abridged productions have been hailed as innovative, visually stunning, and accessible to students. Though the texts are abridged to accommodate school schedules, LIVE! prides itself on keeping Shakespeare’s language intact. The productions are dynamic and appealing, exciting and engaging, witty and imaginative—giving students of all ages the opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s works as the playwright intended—in performance.

This performance will be for ALL Middle School students and all high school performing arts students.

NPSD Music Education ROCKS!
