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.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is supported in part by the Hunton D. Sellman Classical Theatre Production Fund. This fund was established by Priscilla Sellman (1933 BA Communication and Theatre Arts) in memory of her husband, Hunton D. Sellman, who was a faculty member in the Department of Theatre Arts from 1930 to 1946.
