Lyceum Closes Season with Shakespeare

Truman’s 2011-2012 Kohlenberg Lyceum Series will culminate with the American Shakespeare Center’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at 7:30 p.m. March 20 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.
One of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is a mischievous comedy of lovers, heroes, fairies and rude mechanicals in Shakespeare’s tribute to humankind’s power of imagination. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and the Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. The events include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors who are manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest.
