A Midsummer Night’s Dream

John Jay Middle School Theater Club's Fall Production

Taking one of William Shakespeare’s classics, set in a forest in Athens, and moving it to a shopping mall?

That’s part of the fun in store for audiences at John Jay Middle School Theater Club’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by David Fritsch with Assistant Directors Marcia Daley-Savo and Gloria Miller.

The show runs Thursday, November 3 through Saturday, November 5, with 7:00 pm performances, and a 1:00 pm matinee on Saturday, November 5.

Tickets are $10 at the door.

John Jay Middle School Theater Club builds community and confidence.

“This is more serious than the shows in elementary school,” said Ava Rose Baiocco, who plays one of the maintenance workers in the Athenian Shopping Mall. “We can learn from older students. The seventh and eighth graders have experience with shows and understand the pressure.”

RJ Ellerodt, a seventh grader who plays Oberon, one of the faeries, said he likes introducing the sixth graders to theater. “We want them to succeed.”
