— February 2017
The Shakespearean classic “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” comes to life at the Norris Theatre at Louisburg College February 10-18, 2017.
Set at the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969, this timeless story of lovers, fairies, and “the working folks” will leave you breathless with laughter – and with an appreciation for Shakespeare that you might not have had before, either!
Wally Hurst, director of the Norris Theatre at Louisburg College, is directing the production. “We are excited to be bringing Shakespeare back to Louisburg College,” Hurst said. “I look forward to seeing this show take shape in this incredible playing space.”
Hurst has performed professionally in the show twice and directed it three times in his theatrical career.
The show, which opened Friday, February 10. also runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 16-18, all at 7:30 p.m. The only matinee is the final show, on Sunday, February 19, at 2 p.m.
Tickets to all shows are $10 for adults and $5 for students and children. Louisburg College students, staff and faculty are admitted free with a valid ID. Call 919-497-3300 for tickets and more information.
