Experience the magic of AHS Drama’s fall production of “A Midsummer Night's Dream”
Fall PlayIt’s time to experience Arlington High School (AHS) Drama’s fall production of Shakespeare's “A Midsummer Night's Dream” like you’ve never seen it before! Shakespeare's best comedy is reimagined in the early 20th century in the backdrop of an abandoned circus, where fairies cast mischievous spells on lovers, heroes, and everyday people.

“Thanks to the success of last year's sold-out musical, "Mamma Mia", we were able to acquire special equipment that will allow our actors to fly,” said AHS Drama Director, Scott Moberly. “Gone are tights and the traditional Shakespeare formality. Come see fairies fly and do battle on stage as they carry out the plans of the gods on the foolish mortals, and leave wondering if it were all just a fantastic dream.”

Retired AHS music teacher, Jeff Swanson, returned to create original music for the show.

“We wanted to spruce it up a bit,” said senior, Jake Hurst. “There’s aerial combat and lots of humor. The actions really tell the story.”

The first production will be held Nov. 8-9 at 7 p.m. Showings will be held the following week Nov. 15-16 at 7 p.m. All showings will be held at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center at AHS, 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. in Arlington. Tickets are $8 for students and seniors and $10 for all other adults.
