A Midsummer Night's Dream

The Burlington High School Drama Club is pleased to announce that it will perform William Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Friday, December 14 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, December 15 at 2:00 and 7:30 pm, in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center of Burlington High School.

A Midsummer Night's Dream features young lovers who fall comically in and out of love in a ridiculously brief period of time (a single, “enchanted” midsummer night)! Written in the late 16th century, it remains one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage.  A modern interpretation of the original, the BHS production will maintain all written word but will leap centuries to the present day, reflected in updated music, costumes and actions.

The student cast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream includes TJ Horgan as Puck, Marissa Cote as Titania (Queen of the Fairies), Anthony Cruz as Oberon (King of the Fairies), Mike Garcia as Theseus, Rachel Seeley as Hermia, Joram Coichy as Lysander, Katrina Gilstrap as Helena, Chris Cote as Demetrius and Tommy Bezreh as Bottom, the Senior.

Also included in the cast are Nicollette Moodie as Hippolyta, Theseus's fiancée, Holly Brouillette as Marigold, the Fairy Leader, Sarah Burnham as Quince, Timmy Sullivan as Flute, Kara Amuzzini as Starveling, Xavier Little as Snout, Dora Kadish as Snug, Sherif Mehdi as Egeus, August Kaminski as Philostrate, Samantha Hovasse as Mustardseed, Miranda Russo as Cobweb, Emma Saltsman as Moth, and Sarah Iler as Peaseblossom. Ensemble members include Patrick Hoarty, Sarah Jamal-Eddine, Marisa Lee, Lauren Schissler, and Sharleen Varghese.

The artistic team includes Anne Ford as director, John Middleton-Cox as producer, Peter Waldren as set designer, and Maureen Krebs (The Costume Room) as costume designer.

Tickets for A Midsummer Night’s Dream are now available by visiting or by phone at 1-781-A-FUN-TIC. Tickets are priced at $5 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults. All performances will be held in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center, 123 Cambridge Street, Burlington, Massachusetts, a handicapped accessible facility.
