Be The Bard: A Midsummer Night’s Dream–A Fun Twist On A Beloved Shakespearean Classic!

August 28, 2012

Salt Lake City, UT – Be the Bard: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is making its debut at the Midvale Main Street Theatre September 13-22. This well-known Shakespearean comedy portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and the Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors, who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.

Be the Bard: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, conceived by A-Muses co-producer, David Hanson, turns this familiar comedy on its head by inviting a few volunteers from the audience during each performance to be part of the cast in some select roles. The audience member is handed a script or cue cards and a basic costume, and then joins the actors in this hilarious, zany romp. “I was inspired by my research of Shakespearean audiences in conceiving this production,” Hanson says. “In Shakespeare’s time, audiences were quite participative during a performance. Because his work is so well-known, I thought it would be fun to involve audience members as cast members. No two shows will be the same, and each one offers something fun for everyone. I look forward to bringing more of these types of comedies in this same fashion to local audiences in the future.”

Mike Brown directs and this production with Elise Hanson as assistant director. The cast includes Travis Hyer (Thesus), Julie Benedict (Hippolyta), Rusty Bringhurst (Egeus & ), Kathryn Wilkins (Hermia), Kati Paul (Helena), Ryan Honeycutt (Lysander), Sean Keene (Demetrius), Jeremy Jonsson (Oberon), Michelle Hall (Titania), Eve Speer (Puck), Timothy Schonburg (Peter Quince), Rusty Bringhurst (Nick Bottom), Bryce Kamryn (Francis Flute), and a variety of audience members in several roles.

Thank you for making Hairspray a Huge Success!

January 28, 2011

Wow, what an incredible run this has been!  The Cast and Crew is exceptional, the Reviews have been great, and the audiences have had outrageous amounts of fun! Thank you all for making this run such a success. We are experiencing sell-out crowds and standing ovations as well as audiences who meet the cast after the show collecting autographs and hearts along the way!

Just look at what theatre reviewers have had to say: Utah Theatre Bloggers Association and Backstage Utah! We so appreciate your kind words as well as your advice on where and how to tweak a few things for the future. We hope you will come back again and again to enjoy our performances.

To our amazing cast, we are down to 3 performances…(one tonight and two tomorrow). It comes with a certain amount of sadness to see this magnificent event end. Having each and every one of you in your exact roll(s) has been nothing less than spectacular. I am so proud to include every one of you as members of my extended family. You are amazing, every one of you, and I hope to see you all again in rolls at the Midvale Main Street Theatre.

Now, let’s go take this show out with Sizzling Style!

Love and Gratitude to each and every one of you who has worked on, starred in, and supported this production.

Tammy Ross, Director

Alice In Wonderland Rocked!

October 20, 2010

We recently had a group named Titus Productions produce and perform a rendition of Alice in Wonderland at the Midvale Main Street Theatre. This was a great piece of Community Theatre that added so many new faces to our stage. These delightful performances were a musical parody using modern ballads and rock music to emphasize the emotional twists of the story.

The creative story modifications were from the brilliance of Director/Producer Jake Andersen and we look forward to more productions from this group in the near future.
