Other Little Theatre to present 'Dream' Preview: Shakespeare's comedy of magic and mistaken identity opens Friday.

April 14, 1996|By Phil Greenfield | Phil Greenfield,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Don't look now, but fairies have been spotted on the north shore of the Severn River.

Or, you could look closely and see they have been joined by nobles, star-crossed lovers, all manner of supernatural forest creatures and a hilarious thespian with a wondrous propensity for making a fool of himself.

Of course, it's William Shakespeare's most colorful and delightful comedy, "A Midsummer Night's Dream" I'm referring to.

And it will be presented by the Other Little Theatre at the Annapolis Naval Station Theater, 89 Bennion Road, at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays this week through May 4. A matinee will be given at 2 p.m. April 28.

Paul Hussar plays the role of Oberon, ruler of the fairy kingdom. Caitlin Pickall will cast aspersions on mortals as Puck, Demetrius will be played by Kevin Franck, and Bernadette West will undertake the role of Titania.

Other actors, ages 12 to 30, will be on hand to bring Shakespeare's delightful tale of love, fantasy, mistaken identity, magic potions and downright tomfoolery to the stage.

They do good work at the Other Little Theatre. This might be the perfect time to check them out.

Admission is $8, with a discount to $5 for military, seniors, students and groups. Ticket information: 293-9200 or 849-5609.
