A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Sunday, May 29th and
Monday, May 30th

7:30 PM

Adult: $25.00
Child: $15.00

A ballet about the transforming power of love, Peter Anastos’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is based on William Shakespeare’s comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, quarrels and reunitings, of two pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies. With a special presentation of the opening movement of Serenade… Serenade is a milestone in the history of dance. It is the first original ballet George Balanchine created in America and is one of the signature works of New York City Ballet’s repertory. Balanchine began the ballet as a lesson in stage technique and worked unexpected rehearsal events into the choreography. A student’s fall or late arrival to rehearsal became part of the ballet.

General Admission – $20.00
(12 and under free with ticketed adult)

Visit event on Facebook

Centre Helps
Housing Transitions,
and Farm Sanctuary of Watkins Glen
Birdie on the Mountain is a team effort by an alliance of friends and supporters of live music and local businesses, organized by Project 1:37, to bring the State College area a new opportunity to celebrate the arts and enjoy the company of our fellow community members.
The festival was conceived as a way to honor friends and family members lost in the past two years, and to finally reclaim the missed chances to gather with each other to celebrate their lives.
The event is named for Lisa Sampsell, known to her friends as Birdie, and takes inspiration from her love of music and spirit of service.
To honor her memory, and the memory of so many other dear friends, we work to come together to support the passions they held for both performing arts and for charitable giving.

About the Show:

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!
