Coming up in July 2018:

July 6: the Staged Reading series premieres Part Two of an original musical: MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S SCREAM
Directed by Corinna Christman
Music direction by Sidney Friedman

Midsummer Night’s Scream transforms Midsummer Night’s Dream into the tale of a Chicago ghost tour gone awry on a moonlit night rife with revenge, magic, and star-crossed lovers. A two-part musical tale reminiscent of Shakespeare in the Park. In this case…Jackson Park and a couple of other spooky Chicago locales.

Part One premiered on June 1. Part Two premieres Friday, July 6).

Performance begins at 8 pm, Augustana Lutheran Church, 5500 S Woodlawn. $5 admission includes home-baked treats and a moderated discussion after the reading.

July 20-22 & 27-29

As You Like It

directed by Corinna Christman

Free in Nichols Park; performances start at 6pm

Political trouble at home? Banished by an irate ruler? Running from a plot against your life–cooked up by your own brother? Escape to the Forest of Arden, where you can kiss all your old troubles goodbye…and say hello to your new ones! Love is in the air, exiles roam free, and nobody is quite who they seem; but you know what they say, all’s well that ends well.
