Hudson Shakespeare Brings "Midsummer" to Stratford Library

And it's free


          While area residents continue to wait patiently for the reopening of the American Shakespeare Theatre, the Stratford Library is offering the best of the Bard all summer long.  The popular Hudson Shakespeare Company of New Jersey will return to Stratford for its tenth annual season with a program of three productions performed outside in the library's scenic amphitheatre. The schedule this year includes "A Midsummer Night's Dream" opening the series on June 18th followed by "Henry V" on July 23 and "Timon of Athens" on August 13.  The presentations, co-sponsored by the Square One Theatre Company, are free and open to the public.

            "A Midsummer Night's Dream" concerns a mismatched quartet of  lovers set loose in a magical forest who fall under the spell of mischievous fairies.  Directed by Noelle Fair, the Hudson company of actors includes Tzena Nicole, Jon Ciccarelli, Taylor Marsh, Melissa Meli, Leanne Mercadante, Amanda LaPergola, Imran Sheikh, Corey Whelihan and Reynaldo Piniella.

"A Midsummer Night's Dream" will be performed on Saturday, June 18 at 2 pm.  Patrons should bring a lawn chair or blanket to spread in the amphitheatre prior to the 2 p.m. show time. 

In the event of rain or extreme heat, performances will take place in the library's air-conditioned Lovell Room.
