A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Thomas Martin
Lynn Woods – Pennybrook Road Entrance
July 29, 2016—August 7, 2016
One of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream revolves around four love-struck youths who must find their way through the forest and to each other, while overcoming the obstacles of the fairies and the will of the Duke. Love potions are used, tricks are played, and one man (an actor, no less) has his head transformed into that of a donkey!
Please join us for our fifth annual Summer Shakespeare! We will be returning to Lynn Woods for this delightful romp through an Athenian forest. The beauty that Lynn has to offer will be on full display as the backdrop to this Shakespearian classic!
Silence! The Musical
By Jon and Al Kaplan and Hunter Bell
LynnArts Black Box, 25 Exchange Street
October 7-30, 2016
Winner: 2012 Best Musical Off Broadway Alliance
Silence! The Musical is a hilarious parody based on the Academy Award winning film. Voted Best Musical of 2012 by the Off Broadway Alliance and one of TIME Magazine’s Top 10 shows of 2012, Silence! is sure to have you screaming with laughter. More than naughty at times, the show features a chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill dances a hoedown, and Dr. Lecter laments behind bars about the life he’d like to lead. The New York Times remarked on this show as a “hilarious takedown! Makes those naughty ditties in The Book of Mormon seem like trunk songs dropped from The Sound of Music.”
