Concordia University Ann Arbor Theater has announced A Midsummer Night's Dream as the fall 2020 production.
Different than any Concordia performance before, the fall play will be rehearsed virtually and performed via livestream (for free!) on Friday, October 29 and Saturday, October 30 at 7 p.m. EDT.
“While the year may look a little different than we expected, we are thankful that we are continuing our theater season,” said Theater Director Amanda Williams-Contreras. “Coming together as a theater community and connecting with each other is so important in this very isolating time.”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream was selected, in part, is because of its permission to be livestreamed. These rights are not the case for every production.
Following its characters into a dream-like state, CUAA’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will serve as a needed escape from reality.
“Our wish is that our CUAA theater family will become even closer as we share this experience together. We have the chance to seize the moment and make the most out of an unusual situation,” said Williams-Contreras.
