Casting Shakespeare`s A Midsummer Night`s Dream (MND)

1. Cast the following MND characters with film actors. Actors may be current or

c) Egeus, father to Hermia

j) Oberon
k) Titania
l) Puck (some texts call him Robin Goodfellow)

(Other fairies are optional: Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Moth, and Mustardseed)

2. You must provide a REASON for casting each particular character based on
your CHARACTER ANALYSIS of the MND character.
3. To complete this assignment, FIRST describe the MND characters

For example, some of the characteristics we used in class to characterize

4. Next, cast the MND roles with current or past film stars, arguing that the
actors you have chosen have played characters in the movies that demonstrate
similar characteristics

similar, love smitten character named Kelly on the TV show The Office. On The

to Helena, but Ryan is clearly not "into" Kelly the way she is devoted to him.
Kelly is naive enough to think that Ryan wants a future with her, which is as
foolish as Helena`s decision to follow Demetrius into the woods to earn his

4. Please provide a PICTURE of each actor you have chosen to help bring these casting decisions to life, and please UPLOAD this information as a WORD document that we can open in class for discussion.  Only ONE WORD document is required per group or individual project.

THE LOVERS d)LysanderLystander, represents unconditional love in the story, he is willing to risk Egeus’s wrath for eloping with Hernia. e) DemetriusDemetrius is insensitive, as he decides to marry Hernia even when she clearly ha no feelings for him. Furthermore, Demetrius had a relationship had a relationship with Helena, but suddenly left her to pursue Hernia. f) HelenaHelena represents unrequited love, she loves Demetrius who has no feelings for her, and when the spell makes both Demetrius and Lysander to fall in love with her she is skeptical.
