New theater troupe performing Shakespeare in Jeannette, Monongahela
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.
