Scottsdale venue dreams DFT’s Shakespearian ‘Midsummer’ play

Staff Report~ 4/23/2014

Desert Foothills Theater will present a special youth theater production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” from May 2 through May 11 at the FCF-Holland Cabaret Theater, 34250 N. 60th St., Building B, in north Scottsdale.
Directed by Amy Serafin, the DFT production of William Shakespeare’s comedy follows the adventures of assorted royals, wood spirits and actors over the course of one long night in a mysterious forest.
“This is not your musty, dusty Shakespeare,” Serafin said. “It’s the timeless tale re-imagined, re-thought, and re-envisioned for today’s audience. It’s a fresh new take, brought to life by an exciting and energetic young cast and crew who challenge you to put aside your notions of what it means to be a ‘classic.’”
Friday performances are at 7 p.m., as is the second Saturday show. Sunday performances are at 2 p.m., as is the first Saturday show.
Tickets range from $15 to $21 for adults and $11 to $16 for youth and students. A special 2 p.m. performance, featuring a question and answer session after the show, will take place on May 4.
