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.
