Trumbull theater offers ‘Shakespeare’
Trumbull New Theatre will present the comedy “Shakespeare in Hollywood,” opening Friday and running for three weekends, with Lisa Bennett directing.
The play takes place in 1934, where Shakespeare’s two most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, have materialized on the movie set of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Smitten by the glitz and glamour of show business, the two are ushered onto the silver screen to play themselves.
Performances will be at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and again on April 12, 13, 19 and 20. There also will be a 3 p.m. matinee April 21. For reservations, call the box office at 330-652-1103.
