CAST Presents “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Frostburg State University
The Cambridge University American Stage Tour (CAST) will entertain at Frostburg State University again with its performance of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on Monday, Sept. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center’s Pealer Recital Hall.
This romantic Shakespearean favorite surrounds the planned arranged marriage of Hermia and Demetrius. Hermia’s father asks the Duke to punish his daughter to the fullest extent if she disobeys the arranged marriage, but she elopes to the woods with her true love, Lysander. While in the woods, Puck, a servant of the King of Fairies, creates chaos when he uses a magic potion on his queen and another couple. The magic potion leads to a frenzied love circle, creating many entertaining complications among magic folk and mortals alike.
CAST began 17 years ago, and every September the group of Cambridge University students travels to the U.S. to perform Shakespeare’s plays. CAST hosts educational workshops in addition to its performances.
Tickets are $6 for students and $12 for general admission and will be available at the door. For more information, call 301-687-4221.
