Building Traditions

Girl loves guy, guy doesn't like girl, guy likes other girl, and other girl likes other guy. Sound familiar? Just like any modern day soap opera.

These aren't the "Days of Our Lives," this is Shakespeare. This is just the beginning. Add in a few fairies, a group of hard-handed folks performing a play, and a self-righteous Duke and his fianc and you have a great combination we like to call A Midsummer Night's Dream.

This love triangle/mystical comedy is set in ancient Athens during the 1820's. For those of us who don't understand Shakespearean writing, it has been adapted to modern-day English by Doug McClure. The drama club has compiled a cast of talented actors and actresses to bring this play to life.

This is Mabel-Canton's third year of drama club and only our second full production. Our drama club membership skyrocketed from four members to
forty. With the help of the school, staff, parents, and dedicated members we have accomplished many goals. Such as building our own set, making our own costumes and creating a new interest in drama. A great season last year brought us into a new year with high hopes of building a strong theatrical tradition at Mabel-Canton.

A Midsummer Night's Dream will be performed on April 7 at 7:00 pm and April 8 at 2:30 pm. Tickets can be bought in advance from any drama club member or at the door. Regular admission is $3.00 and the price for children and senior citizens is $2.00.

We're proud to have a talented cast and caring individuals in our community. Without them we could not have made it this far. We hope that you continue to support us.

Hope to see you at the performance, and as Demetrius would say "On the way let us recount our dreams."
