Looking for relief from the lousy weather? Here's an idea: Catch a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream opening Wednesday, Jan. 22 and running through Saturday, Jan. 25. Shakespeare's "most accessible" romantic farce will provide laughs, love and a happily ever after ending - the perfect antidote for the winter blues. Showtimes are 7 p.m. each night with an added matinee Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Aquinas College Performing Arts Center. Show your school ID at the PAC Box Office and get your ticket for $6. This the 20th straight season that a combined cast of students from WC and CC have worked together to perform a play from the greatest playwright of the English language. Be a part of this tradition by being a member of the audience. See you at the show!
