Idaho Repertory Theatre’s kids’ camp presents ‘Midsummer Night's Dream’


Students in the Idaho Repertory Theatre’s Summer Drama Camp will perform Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Hartung Theater, 625 Stadium Drive, Moscow.

The comedy about love lost and found is beloved for its imaginative playfulness, according to a University of Idaho news release.



“It provokes children’s natural curiosity and reminds adults of the wonders of youthful gameplaying,” said Robert Caisley, IRT artistic director and UI Department of Theatre Arts chairperson, in the news release.

The production features more than 30 children, ages 7 to 12, who participated in the two-week drama camp, which returned this year after a two-year pandemic hiatus. Vandal alumna Christina Brandt directs.



Tickets, $10, can be purchased at bit.ly/MidsummerIRT or at the door starting 30 minutes before the show, while supplies last. Admission is free for people 18 and younger.
