A Midwinter Night's DreamFor the first time on a professional stage, the delightful madness of Midsummer is transformed into
a whirl of wintry revels and a wonderland of snow and ice. Set in a mystical forest, mortals and
fairies collide as they slip, slide and skate through Shakespeare's hilarious and exuberant ode to
love, beauty and poetry.
Adapted by New Jersey Shakespeare Festival resident artist Joe Discher and artistic director Bonnie
J. Monte, A MIDWINTER NIGHT'S DREAM continues the company's annual tradition of presenting an
out-of-the-ordinary holiday show for all ages.
Says Mr. Discher, who directs the production, "In re-conceiving this play we took painstaking
efforts to remain true to the meter of Shakespeare's verse as well as his intent. Of the more than
2,100 lines in Shakespeare's text, less than 100 lines have been changed. And yet even for those
who have seen MIDSUMMER before, this most beloved of comedies will come to life and thrill in a
whole new way, as moments and scenes take on new meaning against the backdrop of deep midwinter."
In the roles of Titania and Hippolyta, Sabrina LeBeauf makes her New Jersey Shakespeare Festival
debut. Well-known as Sondra Huxtable, the oldest daughter on television's THE COSBY SHOW, Ms.
LeBeauf's stage credits include ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL, KING LEAR and AS YOU LIKE IT at the
Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C.; PRO BONO PUBLICO at the Eugene O'Neill National
Playwright's Conference; OO-BLAH-DEE at the Goodman Theatre and WAITING FOR TADASHI at George
Street Playhouse. She received her M.F.A. in acting from the Yale School of Drama.
