Duke City Rep to Present A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, 3/6-16Duke City Repertory Theatre presents A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare, adapted and directed by Dr. John Hardy. The show will run March 6-16, 2014 (Thurs through Sun), playing Thurs-Sat at 8:00 pm, Sun at 2:00 pm. Opening Night is set for Thurs, March 6, at 8:00 pm. All performances play The Cell Theatre -- 700 1st St. NW 87102.

"The course of true love never did run smooth..." When the Duke of Athens commands Hermia to marry Demetrius or "get thee to a nunnery," Hermia and her true love, Lysander, take refuge in the woods--and run right into a magical free-for-all between Oberon, the Fairy King, and Titania, his Fairy Queen. Stubborn lovers, a band of aspiring players and the mischievous Puck round out this unpredictable Midsummer's Night.

Dr. John Hardy (Poe, A Christmas Carol, Oedipus the King), returns to direct his potent adaptation, and seven actors take on twenty characters in DCRT's teasing, hilarious and magical production of one of Shakespeare's most beloved plays.

The cast features five company members reuniting for DCRT's annual Winter Classic. Among them, Artistic Director Amelia Ampuero was recently honored as "Best Actor" runner-up in Albuquerque the Magazine's "Best of the City" poll.

Come see why Duke City Repertory Theatre was also voted "Best Theatre" three years in a row, and why this production of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be an experience to remember.
