In the Wings: A Midsummer Night's Dream. Meet Sara Hemmerlein.



Sara Hemmerlein plays Demetrius in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the first of two summer productions from Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The play is by William Shakespeare.

Question: Who is Demetrius?
Sara Hemmerlein: Demetrius is a jerkface. He's a horrible person. He's forever being mean to people, and I always feel bad and I want to hug them.

Q: Why do you like Shakespeare?
S.H.: Me and Willy Shakespeare are like best friends, man. We're bros. I've been reading Shakespeare since I've been in fifth grade.

Q: What would be a dream come true for you?
S.H.: To shove an entire shoe up my nose except for the aglets because aglets are creepy.

A Midsummer Night's Dream will run June 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the Tippecanoe County Amphitheater Park, 4449 State Road 43 North, West Lafayette.

General admission tickets cost $10 per person and can be purchased by visiting http://lafayettecivic.tix.com or calling 765-423-7529.
