The Dream on Royal Street

Dream on Royal Street

Musical. Book by June Walker Rogers. Lyrics by David Rogers. Music by Alan Menken.


A madcap interpretation of the Bard's romantic A Midsummer Night's Dream set in the present in the Royal Street Hotel in New Orleans on Mardi Gras night.

Egeus, who owns the hotel, wants his daughter Hermia to marry Demetrius, the assistant manager. Hermia loves Lysander, a lowly desk clerk, and the switchboard girl Helena loves Demetrius. When Oberon and Titania, the fabulous Las Vegas rock stars appearing in the hotel's nightclub, have a failing out, the four lovers become involved in Oberon's scheme for revenge.
