Hamilton drama to present “Midsummer Jersey”

Join Hamilton High School drama students May 2-5 as they perform “Midsummer Jersey” in the Hamilton Fine Arts Center. Shows are at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and at 2 p.m. for the Sunday performance.

“Midsummer Jersey” is the hilarious high-octane retelling of Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” set on the boardwalk of a modern-day New Jersey town. The story is set into motion by the impending marriage of the New Jersey governor, love affairs of four beach-bound high school crushes, a lively crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon. Add a love potion and the desire for mischief and the night takes a magical, mayhem-filled turn. With several weddings and the acting careers of six beauticians hanging in the balance, lovers take to the boardwalk, backed by pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. For advance ticket purchases and additional information, please call the Drama Department Box Office at (262) 246-6471 x1552.

The Hamilton Fine Arts Center is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.
