Video Promo by Magic Spoon Productions: A (4-actor) MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, Penfold Theatre, Round Rock Amphitheatre
(video by José Lozano, Magic Spoon Productions)
In this most beloved of Shakespeare's comedies, Lysandra loves Hermia, Hermia loves Lysandra, Demetrius loves Hermia, Helenus loves Demetrius, and no one loves Helenus (poor Helenus). When the members of this tangled love quadrangle lose themselves in a magical forest one midsummer evening, a band of mischievous fairies playing loose with a certain love potion catapult the romance, confusion and fun to an enchanted new level!
Back for the 10th year of Penfold in the Park! As Lysandra and Hermia flee Athens’ oppressive laws into a forest full of meddlesome fairies, will love come out on top? This new spin on the classic story places all 21 characters in the hands of 4 virtuosic performers for a free night of fun for the whole family!
Written by William Shakespeare and adapted and directed by Rosalind Faires. The production team also includes costume design by Jenny Hanna Chambers, sound design by Lowell Bartholomee,set, lighting and properties design by Natalie George, technical direction by Jacob Foster, intimacy consultant Cate Tucker, with Oscar Franco as stage manager and Carl Gonzales as production manager.
Yunina Barbour-Payne is Titania, Lysandra, and more! You may remember her as Edna in the world premiere of A War of the Worlds.
Taylor Flanagan is Puck, Hermia, etc! This is will be her 3rd Penfold in the Park in a row. Wow!
Kevin Percival is Bottom, Helenus, and others! He joined us over the pandemic in our theatre-by-phone production of The Control Group.
Dane Parker is Oberon, Demetrius, and more! As Ollie, he did all the foley in the world premiere of A War of the Worlds and this is Dane's 2nd production of Midsummer this year!
