The students of the University of Toledo’s Department of Theatre & Film practice their creativity and hone their talent during a full season of winning productions. November blossoms with time-honored whimsy and fields of Pixy Stix as director and Assistant Professor of Theatre Cornel Gabara brings Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to the lovingly restored 116-year-old Valentine Theatre. Following several plot threads, including the supernaturally altered infatuations of two young couples and the antics of a clownish troupe of actors, A Midsummer Night’s Dream deftly mixes fantasy and sidesplitting comedy. In spring 2012, a performance of Sophocles’s great tragedy King Oedipus transports audiences to ancient Greece, Freud’s favorite vacation spot. Inspired by the W.B. Yeats translation of the play, the director eagerly anticipates a lyrical script that will deepen the audience’s cathartic experience of Oedipus’s terrible fate. The season concludes on a lighter note with the Tony-nominated comedy In the Next Room (The Vibrator Play), which teasingly investigates the Victorian era’s progressive treatment for hysteria as well as Beatlemania.
