A Midsummer Nights Dream or the Night They Missed the Forest for the Trees
by Nancy Linehan Charles Produced and Directed by Hannah Northcott
"A Midsummer Nights' Dream or the Night They Missed the Forest for the Trees" is a modern adaptation of a classic Shakespeare comedy wherein teenagers, fairies, royalty and workers collided in a fantasy forest. The teens chased each other in mad love while a magical spell made the fairy queen fall in love with an ass. Meanwhile, six goofs attempted to stage a play and three preppy storytellers drove the story in breakneck speed toward a heartwarming conclusion. This play adaptation was written by Nancy Linehan Charles and produced and directed by Hannah Northcott with special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.

MSND was lots of fun and beautifully staged. - Tom (HS Theater Teacher)
You re-defined the MS play. The kids were just so into it…they were just jumping out of their skin. – Kendra (HS Art teacher)
The play was extremely well executed bringing the impact of Shakespeare to us in a simple and enjoyable manner. The kids did a wonderful job, the costumes were terrific – specially the converse shoes, and so was the set...Congrats and well done!! No pressure but am looking forward to next year’s play. -Alok (MS Parent)
