As we continue our way into March, I hope you are planning to attend a couple of shows at some of the theatre and live performance establishments that can be found here on the idyllic California Central Coast!
Arroyo Grande HS Theatre Company is proud to present its spring production: A Midsummer Night's Dream [PHOTO L-R: Kyle Compton as Demetrius, Savanah Brewer as Hermia, Claire Harlan as Helena, and Michael White as Lysander].
"On an enchanted summer's evening four young lovers find themselves entangled in a bewildering game of love and desire. In a magical forest where a powerful fairy king and queen are at war, nothing is as it seems as mischievous spirits run riot, confusion reigns and love conquers all."
