Casting News: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Our spring production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream helmed by Artistic Director George Mount takes its inspiration from movie musicals of the 1930s and 40s complete with big band music, tap dancing, and all of Shakespeare’s moony romantic fun. The production runs May 3-21, 2017.

Joining us for the cast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a great mix of familiar faces and newcomers to our stage.

Playing the four lovers Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius are Mallory Cooney King, Keiko Green, Casey Raiha, and Adam St. John.

The squabbling super naturals Titania and Oberon will be played by Vanessa Miller and Terrence Kelley, joined by John David Scott as Puck.

The theatrical troupe caught in the middle of the madness are led by MJ Sieber as Bottom, Brandon Felker as Peter Quince, Bob Downing as Snout, Steven Davis as Starveling, Shanna Allman as Flute, and Marco Voli as Snug.

George Mount will play Theseus and Crystal Dawn Munkers will play Hippolyta.

Original music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream was composed by Nir Sadovik and the production will have a live onstage band. Design work for the show will be by Craig Wollam (set design), Doris Black (costume design), Roberta Russell (lighting design).

Tickets are now on sale. A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be performed at the Cornish Playhouse.
