Harrisonburg’s Valley Playhouse presents the premiere of writer and director Jay Zehr’s “Another Summer Night’s Dream” at the Arts Council of the Valley’s Court Square Theater this August 10-13 and Aug. 17-20.
Loosely based on William Shakespeare’s comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Zehr’s modernized farce highlights offbeat humor at its most surreal. Instead of a magical forest, Zehr’s “Another Summer Night’s Dream” is set in the Nevada desert outside Area 51, where Zorkonitron, an arrogant alien leader, manipulates four star-crossed lovers while feuding with his ex-lover, Queen Veronica. Featuring aliens, a reality TV show, and a mysterious Coyote Bob, the hilarious science-fiction-themed play is sure to keep audiences laughing all night.
Performances of “Another Summer Night’s Dream” take place at the Arts Council of the Valley’s Court Square Theater August 10th-12th and 17th-19th at 7:30 PM and August 13th and 20th at 3:30 PM. Adult tickets are $12 advance, $14 at door; senior tickets are $10 advance, $12 at door. Court Square Theater Members receive 20% off tickets and free popcorn.
