Thanks in part to a crowd-funding campaign that passed its goal in just 26 hours, the Summit Players will hit the highway and bring their pared-down put-on of Shakespeare’s A Mid-summer Night’s Dream to Wisconsin state parks this summer. With Maureen Kilmurry directing, the traveling troupe of Kelly Dillon, Ed ’15; Hannah Klapperich-Mueller, Comm ’15; student A.J. Magoon; Joe Picchetti, Comm ’11; Kaitlyn Martin, Comm ’15; Armando Ronconi, Comm ’15; and Ava Thomann, Comm ’15, will operate out of a trunk. “It’s all about the actors and the story rather than the production value,” says Klapperich-Mueller. Audiences should be prepared to have a good time. The players will lead workshops before each performance to help audiences understand the wonderful classical text and their beloved Bard. All offerings are free.
