A Midsummer Night's Dream

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Molly Rhode

Follow the misadventures of fairies, nobles, and craftsmen through the forests of Athens over the course of one magical evening. Love triangles, mistaken identities, and alarming transformations abound in Shakespeare’s most enchanting comedy.

This is a Young Company Performance Project - an actor-driven presentation using elemental production values. By stripping down to a nearly bare stage, the connection of actor to audience is enhanced, and the words of the play come alive in exciting ways, allowing our award-winning students to showcase their graduate level skills with full length material, from Shakespeare to American classics to pieces commissioned specially for them.

Two hours & 15 minutes + brief intermission

Suggested for families with young people ages 11+
