Modern version of "Midsummer Night's Dream" coming to RCC

Rogue Community College theater art students will produce an updated version of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" on Thursday, June 6, and Tuesday, June 11.

Both shows will start at 3 p.m. at the Rogue Auditorium on the Redwood Campus in Grants Pass, 3345 Redwood Highway.

The play has been updated with "modern" language.

"Shakespeare's plays tell wonderful stories and capture the human condition perfectly," said Wayd Drake, RCC instructor. "Unfortunately, the language can be a barrier to understanding. This modernized adaptation is intended to increase understanding and appreciation for Shakespeare's play."

Admission is by donation.
