Sam Houston State University’s Department of Theatre and Musical Theatre Summer Repertory will present William Shakespeare’s fantastical comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” in the University Theatre Center’s Showcase Theatre, Aug. 1-3, at 8 o’clock each evening.

According to head of musical theatre at SHSU, Dr. Laura Avery, the department’s Summer Repertory supports the New Works Initiative, a safe and stimulating playground for artists to explore and develop new works, new approaches and new performance practices.

She said, “Now in its third year, we are proud to present Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in Original Pronunciation with original music.”

Tickets go on sale July 1. For ticket information, contact the University Theatre Center Box Office at 936.294.1339, or purchase tickets at the SHSU Online Box Office. Summer Repertory tickets are $10.

The Showcase Theatre is located on the SHSU campus in the University Theatre Center between the Newton Gresham Library and the James and Nancy Gaertner Performing Arts Center.
