Performance Notes

× A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, begins with the people of Athens entering a moonlit forest and falling under the spell of the fairies who inhabit it. These merry wanderers of the night make mischief as two boys fall in love with the same girl while friends are turned against each other. Artisans attempting to produce a play are transformed into beasts before their eyes, but the King and Queen of the fairies need to make peace before everything can be made well again. The final act is a memorable, hilarious play-within-a-play that captures the essence of the actor’s nightmare and yet somehow has a magical appeal to the City’s ruler in attendance. Performed by seven actors from the Shakespeare Troupe and complete with sets, costumes and props along with some hilarious sight gags and sound effects, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is rib-tickling entertainment for all and an easy, breezy introduction to the Bard’s works.
