AUBURN — Theater will take center stage at the Auburn Public Library this summer, with the Poland Players performing two Shakespearean plays. Excerpts from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the Bard’s comedy about magic spells and love unrequited, will be performed on July 20. The classic “Romeo and Juliet” will be presented on Aug. 3.
The action will make both plays come alive for audiences of all ages. Both performances will begin at 6:30 on the lawn at the library, 49 Spring St., so bring a blanket and picnic supper. Both shows are free, though the Players will pass the hat in the tradition of Medieval street theater. In case of rain, the plays will be performed indoors at the library.
Book discussions
Adult readers will have a chance to explore a few American plays at 6:30 p.m. on July 13 and 27, and Aug. 10 through book discussions at the library. Theatrical scripts are quite different from novels, and the group will explore the differences through “The American Dream” by Edward Albee, “Wit” by Margaret Edson and “Our Town,” by Thornton Wilder. For more information, call Sharon Hawkes at 333-6640, extension 2023.
