A Midsummer Night's Dream
This storyboard does not have a description.
Theseus, the Duke of Athens is to be married to the Queen of the Amazons. The Duke sends his Master of Revels, Philostrate to round up some entertainment for the wedding. Suddenly, Egeus enters angrily-upset by the fact that his daughter refuses to marry Demetrius, and wants to marry Lysander. Theseus gives Hermia three options: marry Demetrius, become a nun or be executed!
Hermia runs away with her Lysander. However, before she does, she tells her friend Helena, who is in love with Demetrius. Helena tells Demetrius in hopes of winning some favor in his eyes. They all end up running into the woods after one another. Meanwhile, a group of amateur actors are rehearsing the play that will be performed at the Duke's wedding.
In the woods, a fairy named Puck tries to solve the love triangle and accidentally makes Lysander fall in love with Helena. While trying to fix the issue, he makes Demetrius fall for her too. Now everyone loves Helena and no one loves Hermia. Oberon, the fairy king, puts a spell on Titania, the fairy queen, to make her fall in love with the first thing she sees.
Puck puts a spell on one of the actors- Nick Bottom, so that he has a donkey's head! When Titania wakes up, the first thing she sees is Bottom and falls in love with him. Hermia, Helena, Demetrius and Lysander won't stop fighting. Puck reverses the spell on Lysander so he loved Hermia again. He keeps the spell on Demetrius so that he loves Helena.
Puck removes the spell on Titania so she no longer loves Bottom. Demetrius tells the Duke and Egeus that he no longer loves Hermia. The Duke agrees that Hermia and Lysander should be married.
In the end, everyone is married! The play “Pyramus and Thisbe” is performed, and Puck ends the play by asking the audience to remember it all as if it were a dream!
