By William Shakespeare
Directed by Craig Johnson

Join us for Highland Center for the Arts inaugural theater production — William Shakespeare’s beguiling comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Funny, physical, romantic, delightful, magical, and touching on the very human follies and fun of falling in love, this community/professional collaboration will involve professional actors and production staff and community members working together to create a truly extraordinary experience. Set in an enchanted forest in the days surrounding the Duke of Athens’ wedding, sparring lovers and a group of amateur actors become entangled in a battle between the King and Queen of the fairies. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a story of order and disorder, reality and appearance, and love and marriage, and proves that the course of love never does run smooth. Filled with magic, royal battles, fools in love, and bumbling buffoons, this dream is extremely accessible to the old and young alike.

“McCarthy plays and composes with palpable sensitivity… he can certainly bring heat.” — Seven Days

In his nine-piece chamber jazz ensemble work, The Better Angels of Our Nature, Vermont-based saxophonist Brian McCarthy explores popular songs of the American Civil War, and introduces original material based on figures and events of the era. A Civil War history buff, McCarthy found the era an ideal subject for a large-scale project that grew out of a Vermont Arts Council Creation Grant. Inspired by Abraham Lincoln’s appeal to “the better angels of our nature’ during his inaugural address, McCarthy’s opus locates the better angels at the heart of music. As he explains, “Jazz came from the African-American experience here in America. Out of the darkness of terrible slavery, Reconstruction and Jim Crow came this really beautiful art form.” Now, McCarthy brings Better Angels of our Nature to the to Highland Center Main Stage, pairing insightful new arrangements of vintage wartime folk songs with vibrant new compositions for his skilled Nonet to explore.

Featuring:
Bill Mobley – trumpet/flugelhorn / Cameron MacManus – trombone / Brian McCarthy – Alto/Soprano Sax / Daniel Ian Smith – Tenor/Soprano Sax / Stantawn Kendrick – Tenor Sax / Andrew Gutaskas – Baritone Sax / Zaccai Curtis – Piano / Matt Aronoff – Bass / Zach Harmon – Drums
