PERFORMING ARTS
A Midsummer Night's Dream
October 28, 29, 30 | 7:00 PM

Don’t miss out on NCHS Theatre Department’s hilarious production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream! Set with a Steampunk twist and with a royal wedding on the horizon, watch as Puck, the mischievous fairy, creates chaos between lovers in the forest with her magic. While the King and Queen of the fairies feud, a group of lowly mechanics rehearse a play to be performed for the Duke, only to have one of the actors end up with the head of a donkey and a night he’ll never forget. 

Tickets and more information can be found on the NCHS Theatre Department website. See you there!

EVENT LOCATION: NCHS Auditorium
