St. John Fisher School Drama Brings A Shakespearean Dream to Life

The weekend of November 16-18, Barrett Hall resounded with laughter at the antics of Oberon, Titania, Puck, Bottom, Hermia, Lysander, Helena, Demetrius, and a whole host of fairies as the SJF After School Drama program brought to life an adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (or The Night They Missed the Forest for the Trees.)  Led by teenage storytellers Jessie, Kaytlin and Anna, audiences enjoyed the Bard’s classic tale as relayed expertly by our young 1st through 8th grade actors.  Our Director Paula brought the best out of these young thespians and made their first experience with Shakespeare a memorable one.

The whole experience was enhanced with technical assistance from current St. John Fisher School middle school students and recent alums, as well as stunning costumes and beautiful sets and props, put together by our dedicated group of drama parent volunteers.  These parents also made available concessions at every performance, as well as telegram sales and door prize opportunities, the proceeds from which directly benefitted the drama program and help keep participation costs low.  As with all of our school productions, A Midsummer Night’s Dream did not fail to delight its audiences – an afternoon/evening of fun and affordable entertainment for the whole family.
