It isn’t summer if someone somewhere doesn’t do a Shakespeare play.

Debra Pickfield,of ThinkSpot fame, brought the Driftwood Theatre Company to Lowville for the third year and now the Tottering Biped Theatre is going to be at what Trevor Copp calls RBG’s stunning new outdoor Rock Gardens where they will be staging ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’… “unlike any you’ve seen before”.

It will be a Mid summer night the likes of which you have never seen before.

Copp describes the production thusly: “Spurred on by their amorous and ambitious dreams, aspiring actors, lovers, and fairies meet in the woods of their sleeping minds in this highly physical adaptation of the classic play.”

Copp adds” “We’ve noticed the difficulty emerging artists have here in getting off the ground – and we lose artistic talent to Toronto/further cities every year as a result.

“So in casting this piece, we searched this area’s post-secondary theatre programs for the most talented senior students/recent graduates – and offered them paid theatre work; unprecedented in our area.

“In supporting this show, you’re teaching the next generation that being an artist doesn’t mean moving away.
