Midsummer Dreams

The Berry College Theatre Company's last production of the academic year featured fairies, fools and midsummer mischief.

Richard Garner, producing artistic director for the Georgia Shakespeare Festival, directed Berry students and alumni in the production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

"Everyone in our cast believes Richard Garner is an absolute genius, and we all have the utmost respect for him," remarked Colleen Curlee, a freshman psychology and public relations double major who played the character Cobweb. "The amount of professionalism and understanding he exhibited toward us (mere college students) was really unique and we all appreciated it."

Garner, a Berry alum, was flooded with memories of his time as a student during the production.

"It's a bit odd walking into rehearsal in the E.H. Young Theatre knowing that our set sits exactly where I sat to eat my meals when the building was in its former incarnation as Blackstone Dining Hall. The sight of all the new buildings on campus speaks to the current vitality of the campus, while familiar friends like the Ford Buildings stand testimony to the endurance of Berry as an institution," he said.

"One thing that hasn't changed is the dynamic energy to be found in the theatre department here. The students and faculty I worked with on Midsummer are fiercely passionate about their work and immensely talented.

The play featured performers and technicians from all over campus, from German to economics majors, from alumni to freshmen. Students and faculty designed the set and costumes, and composed the soundtrack for the play. The performance attracted large audiences and was sold out for all morning shows for local schools and sold out on Saturday night during the second week

"I was really blown away by it all," senior Katherine McDonald remarked after seeing the show, "their adaptation was so impressive and very entertaining!"
