Be transported to a land of kings and queens, fairies and nymphs, music and madrigal, and most of all, trickery and love! Young performers can now experience the work of William Shakespeare in this fresh rendition of his classic play. The 60-minute production features eight original songs in a variety of musical styles, from madrigal to rap, arranged for three-part mixed voices (with suggestions for two-part treble voices). The script calls for ten major roles, several minor parts, and plenty of non-speaking group involvement. The Director's Guide includes staging and interpretation notes, piano/vocal arrangements, and production guidelines. Songs include: A Midsummer Night; Love Never Did Run Smooth; A Pack of Actors We; The Fairies' Lullaby; Bottom's Song; What Fools These Mortals Be; Come Celebrate this Morning; Sing and Bless this Place. Grades 6-9. 60 minutes.
