A Midsummer Night's Dream
A Midsummer Night’s Dream—Shakespeare’s enchanting comic tale of love lost and found—presents love in all its glory, warts and all: Love at first sight, innocent love, love twisted by the mind, by lust, by jealousy, by a marriage on the rocks; love that is thrown into chaos by a mischievous fairy’s mistake. Expect gossamer and moonshine—lions and lanterns—original music and magic in the realm of shadows and dreams in this re-telling of Shakespeare's comic revel.
This production will use theatrical haze and strobe effects.
