Drama students to perform ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’
Students in Del Mar’s first production of the semester have been busy preparing for the show’s Nov. 11 opening.
Brennen Bellows plays Lysander, one of the lovers, in Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
“There’s love potions involved; it’s an emotional roller coaster,” Bellows said, “a funny, emotional roller coaster.”
Although “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will be Bellow’s first college production, it is not his first overall. Bellows was in plays throughout high school and three just in this last year. Being in a play is “the most fun thing a person can do,” he said.
The show runs Nov. 11, 12, ,17, 18, and 19 at the Finley Theater on Heritage Campus; all shows start at 7:30 p.m.
