AIR DATE: April 26, 2010

The Nevada Conservatory Theatre concludes its 2009-2010 season with a new production of Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream. Romantic mix-ups abound in the forest where fairies deliver love potions and a group of "rude mechanicals" attempt to tell the classic love story of Pyramus and Thisbe. So, how does a theater company in the early 21st century get an audience interested in this 16th century fairy tale?

Guests:
Robert Benedetti, Artistic Dir, Nevada Conservatory Theatre
Kenn McLeod, Assistant Dir, A Midsummer Night's Dream and plays "Bottom"
