On the way back to the forest, Shakespeare's most famous fairies; Oberon and Puck, lose their way and somehow end up on the Warner Bros. 1934 Hollywood set of Max Reinhardt's A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Reinhardt has just pitched his movie version of Midsummer to studio chief Jack Warner; he finds out that Victor Jory and Mickey Rooney will not be able to appear in the movie, and is therefore in need of an Oberon and a Puck.  Instantly smitten by the glitz and glamour of show biz, the fairies are ushered onto the silver screen to play (who else?) themselves.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name, the date and time of the performance you wish to attend, and the number of seats you'd like to reserve.  SAS Honors students can use the $1-off coupon code: "midsummer" (this coupon cannot be combined with any other offer).
