BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Bronxville High School will present Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on Nov. 13 and 14.
Performances are on Friday, Nov. 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door.
The production, directed by drama teacher Peter Royal, will be the first show to be staged in the newly renovated auditorium. “Bronxville now has its own globe theater,” Royal said. “I wanted to do a Shakespeare play to inaugurate the new auditorium. We’re doing a play that will be familiar to the audience and is considered one of Shakespeare’s greatest and most beloved plays, and we’re doing it in a place where we can do so many interesting things with the material and the space.”
Students said they look forward to putting on a great show in the auditorium. Royal believes the play is perfect for the opening of the new performance space, and he wishes success to all current and future students who will use it and perform in.
The cast includes Natalie Arenzon, Allison Barker, Rachel Billings, Rachel Bothwell, Max Clark, Caroline Dent, Maxine DeWitt, Hana Eddib, Grayson Elder, Tomas Gibbons, Lauren Gray, Ashley Kaye, Patrick Krall, Amy Kwok, Thomas Neville, Matthew Pytosh, Liam Smyth and Will Tague.
