Summer Theatre: Shakespeare in Hollywood
June 24-28, 8:30 p.m. - MSU Amphitheater
Much Ado About Something! William Shakespeare's most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, have magically materialized on the Hollywood set of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Instantly smitten by the glitz and glamour of show biz, the two are ushered onto the silver screen to play (who else?) themselves. With a little help from a feisty flower, blonde bombshells, the Warner Brothers, Jimmy Cagney and other assorted characters, Oberon and Puck are tossed into loopy love triangles with hilarious results. This script by Moon Over Buffalo's Ken Ludwig will have you rolling in the aisles as you watch a much different version of Shakespeare's classic play.
All shows are in the MSU Amphitheater at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults, $7 for senior citizens and children over 12, $5 for children 12 and under, and $3 for MSU personnel and summer students with current MSU ID. Reservations may be made by calling the Summer Theatre box office at 858-3228
