Lovejoy Performing Arts Presents: A Midsummer Night’s Dream One of the most beloved classical comedies

LUCAS, TEXAS –

Lovejoy High School Theatre is proud to present our first mainstage show of the year with one of the most beloved Shakespeare classics, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The show will be presented September 28th and 30th, 2017 at 7pm.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is about the world’s most popular pastime, falling in love. On one such midsummer’s night, Hermia (played by junior, Marcie Sawyers) escapes from her arranged marriage with her lover Lysander (sophomore, Cy Feagin). They are followed by Demetrius (sophomore, Bryce Fuller), who Hermia is being forced to marry, as well as Helena (senior, Hannah Hansen), who is hopelessly in love with Demetrius. These four lovers become entangled in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where fairies and sprites rule, all while being caught in a mess of love potions and plays within plays.

From humorous lines to memorable scenes, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a performance for everyone featuring characters that audiences will adore such as Oberon (sophomore, Joey Chavez) and Titania (senior, Raegan Vaughn), the forest trickster Puck (senior, Jess Luce), and the ill-fated weaver Bottom (junior, Austin Keefer).

Tickets are $7 for students, seniors, and staff, and are $10 for adults. Tickets are on sale now at https://tinyurl.com/MidsummerLHS.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a hilarious, joyful play that families will fall in love with (no love potion required). Come enjoy the show at Lovejoy High School Auditorium at: 2350 Estates Parkway, Lucas, Texas

Lovejoy Performing Arts Presents: Fiddler on the Roof

LUCAS,Fiddler on the Roof TEXAS –

The tradition of great musicals continues at Lovejoy High School with this year’s family- friendly performance of Fiddler on the Roof. The show will be presented January 19 – 21, 2017 at 7 pm.

Set in the small Russian town of Anatevka in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof tells a story of faith, family, and tradition.

He is forced to choose between maintaining his Jewish culture and the happiness of his three eldest daughters Tzeitel (sophomore, Adelyn Maruca), Hodel (senior, Zoe Kahana), and Chava (junior, Renae Haas).

From laughter-inducing lines to memorable music, Fiddler on the Roof is a show for everyone featuring characters that audiences will fall in love with, such as Tevye’s endearingly feisty wife, Golde (senior, Rachel Bradley) the local matchmaker, Yente (senior, Abby Yaeger), the village butcher Lazar Wolfe (junior, Vinny Horlock), and the poor lovestruck tailor Motel (junior, Ryan Hyde).

The show offers iconic and beloved songs such as “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “Tradition,” and “Sunrise, Sunset,” making it a perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for students, faculty, and seniors. They can be purchased at our online box office at: http://tinyurl.com/LovejoyFiddlerTickets  starting January 10, 2017.
