Costuming "A Midsummer's Night Dream" at Circle Theatre

I costumed a modern day version of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer's Night Dream" where the lovers are preppy teen-agers, the mechanicals are working class slackers and the fairies are now punk rockers!

The show was fun with everyone in the beginning scene starting in black and white versions of their colorful and crazy outfits they wear once they have entered the forest.

Circle Theatre’s resident youth program, The Emerging Young Artists (CTEYA), will continue its commitment to exposing young people to the classics (Much Ado About Nothing 2008) with one of Shakespeare’s greatest works featuring 90 minutes of Rock ‘n Roll infused, highly physical comedy and a cast of young performers ages 12 to 18.

Among the most popular of all Shakespeare’s comedies, this play humorously celebrates the complexities of love. With its several pairs of lovers, on-again, off-again romances, magic spells, fairies, and a bumbling troupe of would-be actors, the play continues to enchant audiences.
