The Bothell High School Drama Department is performing a classic this winter. They will be performing Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” To give this well-known play a twist, it will be set in the 1920s; instead of fairies running around a forest, there will be flapper girls in Central Park.

    According to director Ms. Chaya Glass, the rehearsal process is going very well and “people are really getting into their character and understanding what they’re saying.” The actors are very excited to perform this new version of Shakespeare. “The most difficult part is definitely the language,” says Austin Wyatt (‘19), who plays Lysander in the show. “The best part is being able to act out Shakespeare.”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream will open January 11 at 7:00pm and will have following performances on January 12, 17, 18, and 19 all at 7:00pm. The 19th will also have matineé at 2:00pm. All performances will be held in the Northshore Performing Arts Center. So go see the show because according to Emma Schleppi (‘19), who plays Helena, “It’s a fun time, full of romance, action, and humor!”
