The Missouri University of Science and Technology Campus Performing Arts Series continues with William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream performed by Aquila Theatre Company at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 28. The show will be in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the Missouri S&T campus, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
Tickets are $38 for adults and $28 for students and youth. The first 75 tickets for Missouri S&T students are free.
Tickets are available online from the Leach Theatre Box Office. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 573-341-4219 for more information.
At the heart of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Puck, the Fairy King’s impish servant, whose magic creates an endless supply of mirth, mistaken identity, and inappropriate, if not ludicrous, passions. Aquila’s imaginative interpretation of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy renews the magic of the story’s theme of love and its attendant complications.
Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club” one hour prior to the event, should tickets remain for the show. The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold for $10 each prior to the performance.
This performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is sponsored in part by Bob and Susan Hooper and the Baymont Inn and Suites. Additional funding for the Missouri S&T Campus Performing Arts Series is provided by the Missouri S&T Endowment for the Performing Arts.
