Therefore the winds, piping to us in vain,
As in revenge, have sucked up from the sea
Contagious fogs, which falling in the land
Have every pelting river made so proud
That they have overborne their continents.
~Titania, II, i A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Our extraordinary Midsummer company have been working for a week at the Bruns—slowly building a magical show under near-constant rainstorms. Between rain-drenched wood, electrics workers finding time to climb the rafters in rare moments of dryness, and the actors switching from bursts of focus to wet weather interruptions, this has been an even more adventurous tech rehearsal process than usual!
Due to the loss of more than 20 hours of workable rehearsal time, Cal Shakes has officially canceled our first two previews to ensure the cast and crew get the time they need to prepare this amazing show. Join us starting Friday, May 24, for a Midsummer you’ll never forget!
