CLOVER The Clover High School Drama Club will be presenting “Midsummer Jersey” at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at the Clover School District Auditorium.
Tickets cost $5 at the door.
The play is the hilarious, high-octane retelling of Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” that is set on the boardwalk of a seaside town in modern-day New Jersey.
The story revolves around 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 that is managed by Patti Quince and stylist Nikki Bottom.
The night takes a magical turn when Oberon and the impish Puck arrive on the scene armed with a powerful love potion 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 pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite.
