A Midsummer’s Night Dream is a comedy play by William Shakespeare set in Athens and consists of several subplots revolving around the marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta.

It’s also the Winter Production of the Lathrop High School Centre Stage Theatre.

“This is our first time taking on Shakespeare,” said teacher and director Hillary Pangburn. “Everyone has been doing a great job.”

She’s been working with a cast of about 35 on the various subplots that conflicts among the four Athenians – one follows a group of six amateur actors rehearsing a play before the wedding while another group consists of fairies who manipulate humans.

A Midsummer’s Night Dream is a popular and widely performed Shakespeare play.

Pangburn and her group have been in rehearsal for the Winter Production since September.

Performances are scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and following Friday (Dec. 8), beginning at 7 p.m. on all three days.

Lathrop High is located at 647 Spartan Way.

General admission is $12 and can be purchased online or at the door (card only, no cash).
