"A Midsummer Night's Dream" July 25-August 3, at Lakeshore Players

Find out what happens when you mix true love, magic and a donkey as Lakeshore Players has been transfored into the Forest of Athens this summer for Shakespeare's magical comedy, "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

Adapted especially for Lakeshore's Summer Youth Players by Resident Artistic Director Ben Ratkowski, this magical show promises something for everyone with a trickster fairy, a hilarious play within a play, and magical transformations.

The show is the culmination of Lakeshore's 23rd annual summer teen theater camp, a full immersion theater arts program.

"The entire theaer is immersed in magic," said Ratkowski. "Through intensive workshops over three weeks, the 30 teen actors quickly harnessed their imaginations to create a unique spin on the timeless classic. This show will be fun for the whole family."

While mornings were spent rehearsing and honing acting skills, 23 of the participants elected to spend their afternoons learning technical theater skills. "Tech Students" worked on scenic construction and set painting, stitched costumes, and even learned how to control the stage lighting.

Performances are July 25 through August 3, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. at Lakeshore Players Theatre, 4820 Stewart Avenue in White Bear Lake.

Tickets are $10-$12 and may be reserved in advance by calling 651-429-5674, with remaining seats sold at the door starting two hours prior to show time.

Funding for Lakeshore’s Summer Youth Players was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council and the Minnesota State Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
