PASADENA, CA -- The Pasadena Shakespeare Company will present A Midsummer Night's Dream at its home in suite 296 of the Plaza Pasadena Mall (in the 300 E. block of Colorado Blvd.) April 23-May 30. The production, which opens on Shakespeare's birthday, marks PSC's second show of the 1999 season.
Director David Paul Needles said that while his production emphasizes comedy and whimsy, "it also embraces the magical and ethereal elements of the piece."
Needles is associate director and founding company member of PSC. He also serves as educational director, having directed and implemented PSC's Creative Dramatics Program for children in association with Kidspace Museum.
PSC has garnered positive reviews in its first three seasons, with the L.A. Times calling it "a first-rate theatrical company."
