Lachlan and I wandered over to School Road yesterday morning to watch a portion of the dress rehearsal for A Midsummer Night's Dream. The play will be performed outdoors on two alternating stages -- the "live oak stage" next to Books to be Red, and the parking area in front of Deepwater Theater. Lachlan was fascinated by the costumes and the action (I don't think he got much of the plot). He said he "had the best seat in the house" (in the crook of a cedar tree).
The play is an Ocracoke high school production, but because of the size of our school the cast includes younger children as well as several adults from the community. It is quite an undertaking...and lots of fun!
Come on out for the shows: Thursday (May 6) & Friday (May 7) at 5 pm, and Sunday (May 9) at 2 pm. Tickets ($6 for adults & $4 for kids) are available at the school office, or from director Charles Temple (252-921-0462).
