‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ on tv

By
From page B4 | February 10, 2012 |

El Dorado High School’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is to be cable-cast on Comcast SCA-TV2 and “streamed” on sierratv2.blogspot.com.

Last November, the talented cast from El Dorado’s drama department, Studio 81, staged an innovative and highly acclaimed production of this Shakespeare classic.

Under the creative direction of drama teacher, Paul Tomei, it became the hottest ticket in town necessitating the addition of two more performances to accommodate the demand for admission into the intimate high school theater.

The play was done in the round and filmed with four different camera angles.

Now, Comcast Channel 2 (SCA-TV2) will not only cable-cast this play in its entirety but will also feature interview segments with selected cast members. Using a “mini-series” type of format, the play will be divided into four parts with each one being introduced by the students who participated.

Since this Shakespeare work is essentially a multi-layered love story, it will be broadcast during the evenings leading up to Valentine’s Day.

Broadcast schedule

Friday, Feb. 10, 8 and 10:30 p.m. — Act I
Saturday, Feb. 11, 8 and 10:30 p.m. — Act II
Sunday, Feb. 12, 8 and 10:30 p.m. — Act III
Monday, Feb. 13, 8 and 10:30 p.m. — Acts IV and V
Tuesday, Feb. 14, 10:30 p.m. (or following the Placerville City Council Meeting) —Acts IV and V

Facilities to film the interview segments were generously provided by Camino Flower Shop located at 1297 Broadway in Placerville.
