“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” set for the outdoor stage beginning April 22 at Anoka-Ramsey Community College

April 19, 2021

Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dreamopens April 22. Performances are scheduled through May 1 and will be the first time this year the community will be able to view one of the college’s student-led productions in person.

“The students have designed and built the costumes, properties and sound design for the production and we are so excited to share their work,” says Director and Theatre Instructor, Blayn Lemke.

Performances will be held outdoors, at Anoka-Ramsey’s Coon Rapids Campus. Tickets are limited to ensure safety of the student performers and guests, but the events are free and open to the public.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is a tale of love, confusion and chaos. The play begins with the celebration of an upcoming royal marriage. Four lovers on the run and a ragtag theater troupe being tormented by mischief-making fairies join in the mad capped action. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. An action-packed story, that is so improbable it seems only a dream.
