RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – Ridgefield’s Julia Ryan is joining The Armonk Players in their presentation of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night's Dream” this month at the Whippoorwill Hall of the North Castle Public Library.

Ryan will play the role of Sterveling in the classic.

Shakespeare's comedy, replete with confused lovers, mischievous fairies, eager to please mechanicals and a changeling is one of his most popular and widely performed plays. The Armonk Players has retained the beauty and humor of the Bard's words and story while steering this production in a new and imaginative direction. Set in modern time, be assured that "what happens in the woods stays in The Woods."

Directed by Christine DiTota of Carmel, the cast features Tom Ammirato of Mt. Kisco as Flute, Bruce Apar of Yorktown as Peter Quince, Anthony Barresi Jr. of Goldens Bridge as Demetrius, Steven Bendler of Yonkers as Lysander, Nancy Jane Blake of Peekskill as Snout, Daniel Carlino as Puck, Isabella Marion DiBuono of Carmel, Brandi Danielle Gestri of Armonk as Hermia, Heidi Giarlo of Port Chester as Snug, Jennifer Edwards Kawa of Inwood as Helena, David Morabito as Oberon of Sleepy Hollow, Mikaela Whitney Russano of Armonk, Julia Ryan of Ridgefield as Sterveling, Tony Val as Bottom of Port Chester and Leah Wendt as Titania of Valhalla.

  • Saturday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m.
  • Thursday, Dec. 11 at 8 p.m.
