A Midsummer Night’s Dream, 1987


March Madness: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Spring has officially sprung! And yet the snow will not seem to let up and melt away. During these last, long few months of winter, I’ve started to think ahead to sunny, summer days. What better place to be than transported back to the Depot Theatre in 1987 and William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The play takes place in an enchanted wood outside of Athens – a welcome change from chilly upstate New York! Look through some photos and peruse the playbill from the Depot’s take on this Shakespearean staple.

About the Depot Theatre Archival Project:

Lindsey Poremba is a senior at Skidmore College. She is from Brookline, New Hampshire, but in the past few years has grown to love living in upstate New York. At Skidmore, she is studying art history and arts administration, which led her to learn about the Depot Theatre, and the Westport community. This semester, she is continuing the work of archiving visual materials for the Depot Theatre.

Note: The Depot does its best to identify photos and other materials in our archives. Given the 40-year span, there may be missing or incomplete information. We welcome any additional information, corrections and edits that will help complete the archive for years to come!
