Monticello High School presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The Monticello High School drama department will tackle William Shakespeare this week for a two-day run of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Under the direction of Sheryl Soderstrom and student director Kayla Holyoak, the play begins at 7 p.m. on November 14 and 15 at the high school auditorium. Tickets are $5.

A marriage has been arranged between a young man and a not-so-willing young lady. She and her true love steal away into the forest to be secretly wed, pursued by the first young man, who is himself pursued by an old flame. Meanwhile, a group of craftsmen meet in the forest to rehearse a play they aspire to perform for the Duke and his new wife. All become ensnared in the careless spells and pranks of the woodland fairies.

The story of star-crossed lovers, mistaken identities, and a play within a play features Teresa Francom and Travis Tibbs as Hermia and Lysander, and Joseph Weatherford and Linda Barton as Demetrius and Helena.

The cast of aristocrats includes Emmanuelle Reay as Duke Theseus and Heather Holyoak as Hippolyta.

The Faeries are led by Kayla Holyoak as Oberon, Janelle Jack as Titania, and Hannah Boyle as Puck and include Janalee Weatherford as Cobweb and Risha Price as Mustardseed.

The craftsmen include Clarissa Jack as Quince, David Boyle as Bottom, Wyatt Holyoak as Flute and Miriam Reay as Snug.

Janalee Weatherford doubles as Snout, Risha Price triples as Starveling and Philstrate, and Miriam Reay triples as Egeus and Peaseblossom.

The technical crew includes Nathan Fuller, Andy Killary, Kayla Holyoak and Adam Butler.
