The Rude Mechanicals
From A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
AVAILABLE FOR STUDENT MATINEE PERFORMANCES AT LAKEWOOD PLAYHOUSE
WE CAN BRING THE SHOW TO YOU!
The Rude Mechanicals are a group of six tradesmen who want to be and think they are actors...only problem is… they are REALLY bad. They are preparing to perform the lamentable tragedy Pyramus and Thisbe at the Duke's wedding which is a BIG deal.
Add the characters of Titania, the Queen of the Fairies, Oberon The King of The Fairies and Puck, Oberon’s mischievous side kick and comedy mayhem ensues!
We will be using actual Shakespearean text but we will also have translator/narrator for the audience.
It's a PERFECT introduction to Shakespeare.
This is NOT dry, boring Shakespeare that no one can understand...this will be
ALIVE, VIBRANT, UNDERSTANDABLE and HILARIOUS!
Suitable for Grades K-8.
YOUTH performing for YOUTH!!
The actors in this production are students of the Lakewood Institute of Theatre.
