Cinnabar Young Repertory Theater presents "Midsummer/Jersey," Ken Ludwig's humorous re-telling of Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream" set on the boardwalk of a seaside town in modern-day New Jersey.
The story is set into motion by the impending marriage of the governor of New Jersey, the love affairs of four beach-bound high school crushes, a lively crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon (run by Patti Quince and Stylist Nikki Bottom). The night takes a magical, mayhem-filled turn when Oberon -- angered by his wife who refuses to buy him a muscle car for his birthday -- and the impish Puck arrive on the scene armed with a powerful love-potion-filled flower and a desire for mischief-making.
With several weddings and the acting careers of six beauticians hanging in the balance, the lovers take to the boardwalk, backed by pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., Feb. 22 through March 3.
Tickets are $15 for ages 22 and over and $10 for ages 21 and under.
The Cinnabar Theater is located at 3333 Petaluma Blvd, North. Call 763-8920 or visit www.cinnabartheater.org.
