The College of the Canyons theatre department will open its production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" this week at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) at College of the Canyons.

In the play, lovers cross with mischievous sprites in a magical forest where nothing is what it seems. Deliciously dark and entertaining, "A Midsummer Night's Dream" will presents an intoxicating blend of mortals, mechanicals and faeries, COC said.

With a plot resembling a modern day soap opera or reality dating show, and a cast of some of Shakespeare's most popular characters, "A Midsummer Night's Dream" has been hailed for centuries as one of the world's greatest romantic comedies, according to COC.

"‘A Midsummer Night's Dream' is a feast for the eyes and the ears," said Paul Wickline, chair of the college's theatre department. "This is one of Shakespeare's most accessible plays, and our interpretation will be appropriate for all ages." 

Performances are scheduled for following times:

• Friday, May 21 at 8 p.m.

• Saturday, May 22 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

• Sunday, May 23 2 p.m.

All shows will be held on the PAC main stage. General admission is $10 or $5 for COC students and seniors.

The College of the Canyons theatre department's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is part of the college's ongoing 40th Anniversary celebration.
