The weather was cool and the ground was soggy, but more than 105 people attended A Midsummer Night’s Dream as it moved indoors to the Harrison County Parks Department office/sanctuary. The public enjoyed the play and the venue (previously Wright Interpretive Center, old Presbyterian Church) just off the Corydon town square. Hilarity ensued as the multiple stories were told and the fairies created mischief.
Attendees of all ages came to the production performed by TheatreWorks of Southern Indiana and directed by Martin French and James Thompson. Library director Alisa Burch welcomed the audience and thanked the Harrison County Parks Department for providing the indoor venue. Other community partners were Corydon Capitol State Historic Site (the original outdoor location) and the Harrison County Visitor’s Bureau which remained open until 8 p.m. with restroom services. Hannegan Roseberry of TheatreWorks of Southern Indiana introduced the play and mentioned that “theater is alive and well in Corydon” noting there were two other local live productions that night in Corydon.
Harrison County Public Library sponsored the Corydon performance of the Arts Alliance of SoIN Spring Tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As the audience exited the building, many complimented the performance and the venue and thanked the actors.
