Shakespeare Play in Just One Day: A Midsummer Night’s Dream!

Aaron Sullivan, Maggie Woolley and Mike King
We did it! On the evening of Jan. 19, A Midsummer Night’s Dream was randomly selected, cast, and read through. On the 20th, after rehearsing in the morning, afternoon, and evening, we mounted the production. The event was a resounding success, and officially kicked off the “All the Works | Seasons of Discontent” capital campaign. Visit the campaign page to be a part of Prenzie’s future!

Shakespeare Play in just One Day Fundraiser

You are invited to one of the craziest things the Prenzie Players have ever attempted. We’re going to put on a Shakespeare play, but we’re not telling you what it is, because we don’t know. We will randomly select a play 24 hours in advance, cast it, rehearse it, and perform it the next night! Come join us for a night of fun as we do the impossible. This will also be the official launch of Prenzie’s new Capital Campaign aimed at funding the “All the Works” project, our ambitious version to complete the entirety of Shakespeare’s canon. Admission is $10 at the door at the Quad City Theatre Workshop. We hope to see you there!
