A Midsummer Night's Dream Guide

This guide to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream began as the From Stage to Screen: Shakespeare and the World Wide Web project with the Moscow Alternative School Center in Idaho. This guide will walk you through the steps we took at MASC to put on our production of Midsummer. In addition, you will find a computer study guide, study questions, and Midsummer links from around the Web

Read a Summary of MND.
Where to begin?

I have found that the best place to begin a study of any play is with a good understanding of the story. I wrote the following tongue-in-cheek summary to introduce my students to the basic plot of MND. This summary also includes lines from the text. Teachers will find a lesson plan for this activity in the Teacher Zone!

The Next Step
After you have a basic understanding of the plot, it is time to read the play. The following text is the cut version that was used in the MASC production. Visit J.B. Siedlecki's site for a fully annotated script.

The script contains links to the MASC production photos!
