A Midsummer Night's Dream  
Reservations are required.  Email to reserve your spot
(There are only 450 seats available.)

A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's most endearing comedies.  Although it is an early work, it
contains complex, lyrical text and conjures up unforgettable characters like Puck, Bottom and Titania.

In concocting this story, Shakespeare did not rely directly upon existing plays, narrative poetry, historical
chronicles or any other primary source materials, making it a truly original piece.  A Midsummer Night's Dream
contains some of mankind's most wonderful expressions of love, dreams, and the stuff of both.

Students will enjoy a fully costumed, classical production of this play.

This FREE show includes:  Pre show lesson plans & materials emailed to teachers
Pre-show Q&A with the actors and technical staff at 10:00 am.
