‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ awakens for final weekend

A court, fairies and workingmen are part of the plot in an interpretation of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” staged by Brookings Harbor Community Theater at the Dori Randall Performing Arts Center in Harbor. Submitted photo.

Brookings Harbor Community Theater invites the community to its special production of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” directed by Josiah Wise and Tiffany VanMaren. 

The 419-year-old play has always inspired theater directors to try new interpretations of the classic. Wise and assistant VanMaren tackled the production with a fresh twist, setting the love, fantasy and goofball tale in a 1950s high school.


A century of living

Jack Figueiredo recently celebrated a century of living.

Nesika Beach resident, Jack Figueiredo, “tried out” retirement — 40 years ago. 

But Figueiredo found himself, like others, not quite knowing what to do with his newfound freedom from the daily grind.

“I did what everyone else did when I retired. I played some golf, fished a bit, worked around the house,” Figueiredo said.

He traveled and saw the sights with his bride of 50 years, 93-year-old Naomi, who smiles at her husband and his milestone birthday.
