The Theatre Company production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be performed on November 2, 3, and 4 at 7 p.m. at the Glen Rock High School Auditorium.

Adult tickets are $10 each, and Student/Senior tickets are $5 each, and they are being sold 30 minutes prior to the show. For more information on tickets, check out highschool.glenrocknj.org or email [email protected].

“The shows provide an outlet for their creativity and a place to utilize their talents. In addition, the Theatre Company provides friends and a sense of family for students,” according to theatre director Juliet Montalbano.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is being followed directly from the script William Shakespeare wrote. They have decided to perform it this way because modifying it would not make it the extraordinary play it is already.

Glen Rock High School offers a variety of opportunities to engage in acting, and even work with behind the scenes on tech and crew. Izzy Crawford, the tech manager of the production show, has been learning various skills.

“This year, my responsibilities were programming the lights, calling the show, and teaching some kids how to work the light and sound boards,” Crawford said. “A struggle that I faced with this is that it’s the first show I had to program the lights for, so that was kind of intimidating.” 

The performances are not easy to put together, and one of the hardest aspects of this is working with students who have very busy schedules. Not only that, but each student is committed to 3-4 hours of rehearsal almost everyday after school.

“The Theatre Company is such an accepting group of people, and over the show season we really start to feel like a family. I never feel judged during any rehearsal, which makes the learning experience that much more smooth and comfortable,” said Isabel Siggers, who plays Piper Quince.

In the making of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, students have learned their strengths and weaknesses to understand their abilities.
