"Lord, what fools these mortals be!" Shakespeare's classic, enchanting and hilarious comedy comes to life through voice acting and sound effects. Athenian nobles, an impending wedding, heartsick young lovers, amateur actors, and fairies all are transformed during one crazy night in the woods. The Wooster Theatre production features 8 student actors (and one special faculty cameo), each playing multiple roles. Some of Shakespeare's most enchantingly beautiful poetry and laugh-out-loud slapstick comedy are adapted into a production for a modern audience.
