The Nevada Conservatory Theatre concludes its 2009-2010 season with a new production of Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream. Romantic mix-ups abound in the forest where fairies deliver love potions and a group of "rude mechanicals" attempt to tell the classic love story of Pyramus and Thisbe. So, how does a theater company in the early 21st century get an audience interested in this 16th century fairy tale?

Guests:
Robert Benedetti, Artistic Dir, Nevada Conservatory Theatre
Kenn McLeod, Assistant Dir, A Midsummer Night's Dream and plays "Bottom"

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
