TIP OF THE WEEK: “When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down “Happy.”  They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.”  ~John Lennon


STUDENTS
Hermia loves Lysander. Helena loves Demetrius. Oberon and Titania, of the kingdom of fairies, are quarreling and cause mischief by using some magic on the mortals. But they're not alone in that forest. Some actors are practicing a play and due to some confusion by Puck, the whole thing becomes a little bit confused...Come see A Midsummer Night's Dream to see how it all unfolds.  It's a hilarious Shakespeare comedy that includes a play within a play and much mayhem.  Performances are tonight, Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4!  Tickets are $6 for students, $8 for adults.  You can buy tickets at the door OR purchase through homestead.seatyourself.biz.  See you at the theatre!
