Keeping in line with the upcoming MONTAGE SUPPORT SERVICES What’s YOUR Dream? Gala, and completely by coincidence, Abdullah and Chris recently performed in a uniquely adapted version of A Mid Summer Night’s Dream. The production was very much an interactive afternoon of Shakespeare’s words, shadow puppets, music makers, original art and an apothecary of magical potions. The JCC Miles Nadal community centre houses the Al Green Theatre, which was transformed into the mystyical woods where the story- telling begins. Chris sang a melodic solo accompanied by a beautiful stream of music in the distance. Abdullah was one of the supporting cast and it was evident that his critical eye was carefully watching each move. Abdullah has aspirations to be involved in directing future productions.
The writer below from CBC spoke with the dreammakers about their vision and the support of the Toronto and Ontario Arts Councils.
