About the Show:

One of the greatest comedies ever written, A Midsummer Night’s Dream revolves around the adventures of four young lovers and their interactions with the fairies that inhabit a mysterious forest. Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated still further by Puck, a mischievous fairy, who causes hilarious bouts of confusion. Other visitors to the enchanted forest include Nick Bottom, the weaver, and his friends Snug, Snout, Quince and Flute: the amateur dramatists who want to rehearse their terrible (but hilarious) version of the play Pyramus and Thisbe that they will perform for the Duke of Athens upon his wedding day. Set in the summer of 1968 and integrated with music and dance, this production will be a comedic spectacle that brings The Bard to our larger venue.
