By William Shakespeare
Shakespearience 2017 Presents
A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Recommended for grades 7-12

February 13- April 14, 2017

“Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
A girl has a crush on a boy who has a crush on another girl who is the girlfriend of another boy. Add to that a group of amateur theater performers preparing a play for a marriage party. Then mix it all together with a group of mischievous fairies. Shakespeare’s comedic triumph A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of the most popular plays in the world and with good reason. Romance, madcap comedy and magic transformations will surprise and delight you!
