Congratulations to the Stanner Players and Director Ms. Shannon Winters ’06, who recently wrapped up a full weekend of in-person/virtual performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare! Back in 2010, the Stanner Players took audiences on a whimsical journey through this classic theatre comedy. Now, in 2021, Ms. Winters says she had the right group of actors to not only revisit Midsummer, but also switch things up. According to Ms. Winters, “Because Midsummer is one of the most produced plays for high school students, I wanted to put a different spin on it so that it wouldn’t be the usual Renaissance style retelling. Given we are at the start of the 2020s, the nostalgia of the 1920s seemed appropriate, as well as that we are finally welcoming back a limited in-person audience, so it seemed like something worth celebrating indeed!”
