JCompany Youth Theatre presents Shabbat Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – JCompany Youth Theatre is bringing its brand new production of Shabbat Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream to La Jolla!
Shakespeare’s most beloved and approachable plays comes to La Jolla in only the way JCompany can do it! In an effort to bring the community together, join in the celebration as we step away from the week to enjoy the timeless combined magic of Shabbat and Shakespeare.
The main plot involves two sets of couples—Hermia and Lysander, and Helena and Demetrius—whose romances are complicated by the whims of Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the Fairies, and their servant Puck. Shakespeare’s lighthearted play explores the capricious, dream-like, and sometimes ridiculous nature of love. A Midsummer Night’s Dream brings further humor with its play-within-a-play format, in which a group of craftsmen celebrate the upcoming marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta by putting on a badly performed play.
KUSI’s own Theater Guru Joey Landwehr as well two stars from the show, Nika and Kourosh Sadr, stopped by Good Morning San Diego to talk more about this weekend’s performances.
