Three separate plots intertwine in the woods near Athens leading up to the marriage of the Duke of Athens and Hippolyta.
The lives of four young lovers and a band of craftsmen and amateur actors are manipulated by a group of fairies who inhabit the forest.

Center to the main plot is the young lovers Lysander (Daniel Powers), Hermia (Alex Creamer), Demetrius (Will Farnelli) and Helena (Skylar Secord).
David Schmidt appears as ‘Bottom,’ the weaver and actor placed under a spell by Puck who becomes the focus of the Queen of the Fairies, Titania (Bonnie Love-Colwell).

EMTC is a non-profit theater company bringing the excitement of the live stage to Susquehanna County. In addition to this performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ EMTC has planned a full season of productions, including EdCamp showcase performance, 7:00 p.m. Friday, July 25 at Susquehanna Community High School; and the summer musical ‘Hello, Dolly,’ Aug. 1-2, in the auditorium of the Blue Ridge High School.
Written by Lee Mueller, the story centers on eccentric millionaire Albert Doornale, who has invited several guests to his estate. Among them: his ex-wife, Abigail; his fiancée, Candy Bambay; and his childhood friend from the lower East Side, Salvator Carbone. They are ushered in by the grumpy butler and cutlery-carrying cook. But Albert is nowhere to be found, and no one, including Albert’s spoiled daughter and nerdy nephew, know where he is. When blood is found in an upstairs bathroom, the plot thickens. Inspector Bukowski arrives on the scene, but the murder investigation hinges on finding a body, and that may take a while.
Sandra Raub is directing the cast, which features Caleb Park, Kim Fisher, Kevin Gates, Bob DeLuca, Art Donato, Katherine Curry and Mark Creamer.
Doors open at six with dinner at 6:30. The menu is scheduled to include chicken strips with penne pasta in butter and garlic, roast beef, broccoli penne alfredo, salad, potato, vegetable, soft drink, coffee, tea and dessert. A cash bar will be available as well.
