THIS PRODUCTION HAS ALREADY BEEN CAST.
A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM is Shakespeare’s best comedy (well, in this director’s opinion). It’s full of humor, love, adventure, and magic!
When the DUKE of Athens refuses HERMIA her right to marry as she chooses, she flees through the wood with her love, LYSANDER. Followed by an amorous suitor, DEMETRIUS, and HIS amorous suitor HELENA, the four lovers find themselves entangled in a magical catastrophe that is too real to be a dream (thanks PUCK). Meanwhile, a team of Mechanicals, meet together to rehearse a play and are struck mad when their fellow actor, BOTTOM, is turned into a donkey before their eyes (PUCK strikes again!). Will these magical misdoings be turned right? Can love conquer all?

It's time to carry the banner on the RTAA stage with Disney's Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!
