The Department of Theatre and Dance showcases the talents of first-year actors and technicians in Midsummer/Jersey, a high-octane retelling of the familiar Shakespearean tale, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set on the Jersey shore.

Suitable for the whole family, the comedy follows four young lovers, a vivacious crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon as they play in the sand, sea and, of course, the boardwalk.

Director is Dr. Michael Slavin. Student Sara Martik is the assistant director, Claire Prenderghast is stage manager, Michael Zandhuis is the sound designer, and Joshua Kovel is the assistant lighting designer.
