Theater at Monmouth presents “Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Rangeley Lakes Regional School and the RFA Lakeside Theater in Rangeley Oct. 18 Theater at Monmouth presents “Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Rangeley Lakes Regional School and the RFA Lakeside Theater in Rangeley Oct. 18 RANGELEY — The Rangeley Friends of the Arts is sponsoring The Theater at Monmouth in a presentation of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in an evening performance at the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main Street Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. Free-will donation accepted. The show will also be presented at 9:30 a.m. for grades 9 to 12 at the Rangeley Lakes Regional School. The production is adapted and directed by Kent Burnham.

Magic, laughter and love are on the loose in the woods outside Athens in Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy. The fairy king and queen are at war, Court and Commoners alike prepare for Theseus and Hippolyta’s wedding, and Puck stirs the pot leading two pairs of lovers on a wild and wacky chase in search of true romance.

In addition to the two performances, TAM will be providing theater workshops to different classes at RLRS throughout the day. TAM’s visit is organized by English Teacher Tim Straub in conjunction with the School Program Committee of the RFA.
