Cast set for A Midsummer Night’s Dream
April 9, 2018
The cast is set and rehearsals are in full swing as the Nicolet Players ready for a seven-performance run of the Shakespeare classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream in early May.
Cast members are, first row, left to right, Adam Bloom, Rhinelander, Somerset Seymer, Eagle River, Erin Bloom, Rhinelander, Josh Gustafson, Minocqua; second row, Alan Higgins, Peyton Pitterle, and Anna Schwartz, all of Rhinelander; third row, Brittany Bredeson, Rhinelander, Ashley Gardner, St. Germain, Cara Dreifurst, H. Nova Kane, Jordan Keso, all of Rhinelander, Charles Lynch, Crandon; fourth row, Dave Daniels, Rhinelander, Judy Berby, Tomahawk, KC Hofer, Rhinelander, Tony Jones, Crandon, Hayden Kaehler, and Steve Richardson, both of Rhinelander. Actors unable to be in the photo are Taleah O’Malley, Rhinelander, and Austin Townsend, Cavour.
The classic story tells the tale of four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by a crew of inept but well-meaning actors trying to rehearse a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most popular comedy.
Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m., May 4, 5, 10, 11, and 12; and 2 p.m. May 6 and 13.
Tickets are $7 and $9 and can be purchased online at nicoletlive.com or by calling (715) 365-4646.
Beer, wine and other refreshments will be available before the performance and during the intermission.
