New Mexico School for the Arts Theater Department presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream
The Theater Department of New Mexico School for the Arts (NMSA) will present its production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Three performances will take place at the James A. Little Theater in Santa Fe.
NMSA’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. The cast will feature 20 students and the show is designed and managed by a 12 student production crew.
“This cast and crew have jumped right in and are creating an enchanting environment. They are attacking the language and developing wonderful characters,” says Joey Chavez, theater department chair. “We are fortunate to have a fantastic crew, they have completely designed the sets, props, and costumes to evoke the magic of the forest.”
