A Deep Sleep for the Play

A student in the cast of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” practices during dress rehersal.

Once upon a time, a group of kids presented a play for Norman North! Norman North’s Spring Play this year will be the famous Shakespearean Play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. On April 20th and 21st, there will be morning and two-afternoon showings. Tickets are sold online and in person in the commons, there are QR codes around the school for you to purchase the ticket online, and tickets are $10. Friday, April 21st, the first hour through the third will be the time for high school students to watch the play. April 2oth and 21st, the play will be at 7:00 pm for family and friends.

This play has it all, love, drama, and comedy. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is about a group of Athenians, fairies, and a group of mechanicals who end up being lost in a forest. The Athenians work through a viscous love square and fall asleep in different locations around the forest when someone interferes with an attempt to solve their problems. William Shakespeare stages the working of love, some even believe that this play represents the dark side of love. The language of this work is enough to transport you straight into the scene. Not only will you walk away with a great appreciation for the ones putting on this play, but you will also see that the true importance of a person is what you cannot see with the eyes. How will we truly know if you don’t go watch the play yourself?

Come support North’s Drama department as they have worked tirelessly to put on the performance of a lifetime for their peers. Learn how love, reality, and order vs disorder are brought to life during the famous stage play. I wouldn’t miss this one!
