The Belle Vernon-based Displaced Thespians will perform William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at two area venues during October.

The Displaced Thespians, a recently formed theater troupe based in Belle Vernon, will present William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at two area venues.

The first performance will be at 5 p.m. Oct. 13 at Rippel’s on the Creek, 807 Dry Run Road, Monongahela. A ticket for this show is $25.

Performances also are scheduled for 6 p.m. Oct. 20 and noon Oct. 21 in the Keynote Cafe, 227 S. 4th St., Jeannette.

Doors will open one hour before performances at the cafe for pre-show activities, including entertainment and a Chinese auction. Refreshments will be available for purchase.

Tickets for the Keynote Cafe shows are $15, or $10 for children ages 5-12; younger children are free.

Reservations can be made on the group’s website.

Formed in February, the group of actors “banded together to provide theatrical opportunities to the Mon Valley and surrounding areas,” according to the website. They specialize in dramatic stage performance, comedy and improv performance.

The name refers to the group not yet having a permanent theater home. The website says they will work with businesses and organizations to stage performances in both indoor and outdoor locations.

Actors interested in joining the Displaced Thespians also can contact them via the website.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
