When the days are longest, the world can magically transform. In a new production of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," the fairies Moth, Cobweb, Mustardseed, Peaseblossom, Puck, Oberon and Titania transform items most of us casually throw away. Old keys, straws, plastic membership and transit cards, wine corks and CDs, all combine in costumes and sets that evoke a magical world. Director and designer Bonnie Monte - a self-proclaimed collector and recycler - describes her vision of "Midsummer" to producer Susan Wallner. The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey performs "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" at their outdoor stage at the College of St. Elizabeth in Morris Township through July 30th.
