The play is about families—about fathers and sons, sisters and their husbands and lovers, brothers natural and unnatural.  It is also about making a family when our birth family is lost.  It is Shakespeare's shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns  and word play.

The play is set in a mythical forest where magic reigns and impossible things happen every day. This show will be filled with music and movement, laughter and most especially joy, joy for the audience and joy for the players.

A Midsummer Night's Dream |  Directed by Julia Thudium

A confirmed army brat, Julia Thudium has been an actress since age 11, performing at Army bases across the United States. She has honed her skills through a variety of mediums, from tumbling to improvisation, from combat to clowning. The last occurring with the famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which she joined in 1989 as a member of the famous Clown Alley after graduating with 2 BFA's: a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago, and a Bachelor of "Fun" Arts at the RBB&B Clown College in Venice, Florida.

 

 After a 2 year stint riding the rails with the circus, Julia headed for Chicago where she performed all over the Chicago land and Regional Midwest, earning her Actors Equity card as well as her Screen Actors Guild membership in 1992. It was in Chicago where Julia branched out from performing, to working with Playwrights to develop scripts, and learning the art of Directing from some of Chicago's finest directing talents. She also collaborated with modern dancers and choreographers, culminating in a yearly program of original material crossing the boundaries of theatre performance and dance to create The City Sideshow.

 

 Her ability to imagine and invent spectacle led her to a job offer in NYC, where she became a producer and learned to apply the art of Theatre to the Science of Communication through large staged events and business theatre. She worked for several production companies focused on the corporate world, all while improv'ing her way around the greater NYC area. In 1999 she decided to "head for the hills" literally, and moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico as a freelance producer and assistant stage/deck manager. Since then her work has taken her all over the world, working on corporate events for many of this country's top Fortune 100 companies.

 

In Albuquerque, Julia has also been active in the Theatre and Film scene, performing both onstage and in front of the camera. Bringing together her artistic abilities with her skills as a producer, she became the Chief Instigator of The Mother Road Theatre Company, currently in it’s 13.5th Season; a professional regional company dedicated to promoting the arts in New Mexico through education and high standards of performance.
