Good Hope Students to Give Shakespeare Classic a Fresh Twist

A fall presentation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is coming to the James C. Center for the Performing Arts at The Good Hope School this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

William Shakespeare’s magical fantasy of frustrated love and mistaken identity will be performed by 38 GHS students ranging from fourth grade to high school.

This contemporary version of the play is the St. Croix directorial debut of Tori Baur, who currently teaches fifth-grade at GHS. The set is designed by her husband, the V.I. Source’s very own John Baur.

“The play is fun and light,” said Tori Baur. “It’s good to have the younger kids that are learning the ropes of how to put on a production and are excited about theater.”

The language in the play is the same as when Shakespeare wrote it himself, but the play is a modern-day piece with classical music mixed with some Led Zeppelin.

Thursday’s opening night performance will start at 7 p.m., while Friday and Saturday’s shows will begin at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
