  • YSHS ‘Midsummer’ mischief, mayhem with a ’50s flare

    In their 1950s version of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ Kelly Miller as Helena, center, is driven mad by her admirers, Demetrius, played by Max Fleishman, and Lysander, played by Adam Zaremsky, who is himself sought by Hermia, played by Zyna Bakari. The mischeivous Puck, Shelley Murphy, looks on from her perch. Performances will take place at Mills Lawn gym on Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Nov. 16 and 23, at 2 p.m.

    If Shakespeare had lived in the 1950s, how he would have dressed, where he would have lived and the way he would have set his stage is surely just what the Yellow Springs High School thespians have dreamed up for the fall production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
