Tucson, AZ – March 26, 2014


Join us as we close out our season with one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.  Filled with lovers, fairies and rustics, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has something for everyone.  Add a misapplied love potion, mistaken identities and the most famous play-within-a play ever written, and you have a perfect recipe for mirth.  The language, poetry, and wit of Shakespeare shine as bright and as lovely as the moon in this timeless classic.
