California University of Pennsylvania's Department of Theatre and Dance will cast a theatrical spell when it presents, “A Midsummer Night's Dream,” the final production of the 2013 spring season.

The whimsical play by William Shaspeare portrays the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors who are manipulated by mischievous fairies in the Forest of Arden.

One of Shakespeare's most popular works, the play is suitable for audiences of all ages.

“Everyone has been working very hard to make Shakespeare understandable for the audience through their acting, since the words are sometimes hard to understand,” said Kellee Cohlhepp, the production's stage manager.

Student actors include Shane Bocchi (Oberon), Madelaine Dudley (Titania), Emily Lorence (Hermia), Molly Malady (Helena), Breanna Otto (Bottom), Mike Rogers (Demetrius), Sarah Schumaker (Puck), and Jonathan Veres (Lysander).

Dr. Michael Slavin directs the play, with set design by Bill O'Donnell.

Curtain time is 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday in Steele Hall Mainstage Theatre.

Ticket price is $12 for adults, seniors and children. Students with valid CalCards are admitted free; their $5 deposit will be returned when they attend the performance.

For ticket information, or to charge tickets by phone, call the Steele Box Office at 724-938-5943.
