Playing Around – Midsummer Jersey

          

The perfect formula for props?  High school + fall play + set design = Yazoo tubes.

Spring Grove High School, a local school in our surrounding community, was in need of some materials for their fall play called Midsummer Jersey.  Yazoo donated six tubes and the students involved in the play turned them into trees as a part of the set design.

The play was a take on William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” that takes place on the Jersey Shore.  Claire Shubert, director of the fall play, chose Midsummer Jersey and later found out that it was written by a York County native, Ken Ludwig.  She said “the students wanted a comedy and I wanted something linked to Shakespeare, so the play fit perfectly.”

Shubert also picked the play so students could learn more about Shakespeare and the 1960’s, the era the play is revolved around.  The play ran from November 18-20, 2016 and
each performance presented a packed house with laughter bouncing off of the walls.
