Midsummer night with Drew Carey and Shakespeare

"The Price Is Right" host Drew Carey is ready to showcase his Shakespearean side in a concert appearance with the Cleveland Orchestra.

The Ohio native says he's "very, very excited" to be narrating "A Midsummer Night's Dream" though he's also a little afraid he might do something by mistake at the Saturday night performance.

Still, the 50-year-old comic says it's going to be a fun evening and something he'd buy a ticket for.

The Cleveland Orchestra will accompany him with music by Mendelssohn.

It's not Carey's first brush with Shakespeare. He has participated in a couple of charity readings of the Bard's works put together by actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson.
