Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Duke City Rep's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Duke City Repertory Theatre will present William Shakespeare's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM March 6-16, 2014 (Thurs through Sun), Thursdays-Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. All performances will be held at The Cell Theatre at 700 1st St. NW Albuquerque, NM 87102. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast below!
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.
Tickets are regularly $20, $12 for seniors, students, and military personnel, $10 for groups of 8 or more, and $10 for the performance on Thursday March 13. Tickets can be purchased by calling (505) 797-7081 or by visiting www.dukecityrep.com. Scroll down for some photos of the cast!
