[Photo Gallery] Three Midsummer Nights at the High School (Video)

Belmont High School's Performance Arts Company's production of the Bard's lovable comedy.

"Don't let the bows be longer than the show," said Christopher Brindley, the young director of the Performing Arts Company's production of Shakespeare's comedy, "Midsummer Night's Dream."

Wearing an sweatshirt with "Emerson" on the chest, Brindley is putting the student's through their final paces as opening night nears.

"It really is something to see this production come together," he said, as the actors scurry off stage preparing for the final dress-rehearsal.

"I think students should always do Shakespeare because it's great fun to stage his plays," said Brindley.

Staged in the 1900s, the comedy is the celebration of love involving two sets of lovers, a group of amateur actors, gods and goddesses, fairies and Puck.

"I think it's such an accessable play that everyone can both understand and really enjoy," said Brindley.

The show will be performed Thursday, Nov. 17, Friday, Nov. 18, and Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Main Theatre of Belmont High School's Auditorium.

Tickets are on sale now at: www.ticketstage.com for $10 or they can also be purchased at Champion Sports or at the door for $12.
