The St. Bonaventure University theater is excited to present its spring production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” March 21-24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on the SBU campus. Professor of theater Dr. Ed. Simone directs a cast of 19 Bonaventure students in this comedic classic by William Shakespeare; a play Simone called “hysterical, moving and literally magical.”

“‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’ is the story of many small characters caught up in a big mess: lovers ensnared by potions, an ignorant weaver affixed with a donkey’s head, and a powerful fairy duped into an impossible romance,” said junior Brett Keegan, who plays the role of Demetrius, one of four lovers caught in the play’s comic web.

Keegan said the unique set design and costumes, along with musical accompaniment, will help bring the play vividly to life.

SBU Theater’s production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will be performed in the Rigas Family Theater at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m., March 21-24. Reserved seating is $8 for the public; $6 for St. Bonaventure students, faculty and staff.  A free student rush ticket is available to any student with a valid student ID, in-person only, beginning 6:30 p.m. at the Quick Center box office. For information and to purchase tickets, call the Quick Center Box Office at (716) 375-2494.

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
