A Midsummer Night’s Dream 

Ah, what fools these mortals be! Whimsically adapted from Shakespeare's classic romantic comedy, “A Midsummer Night's Dream,” this musical features a magical forest, spellbound lovers, and an upstart Puck who decides to liven things up by modernizing the dialogue and adding song and dance numbers. It's all fun and games until William Shakespeare, fresh from spinning in his grave, leaps onto the stage, demanding to know what on earth is going on! 

Although this musical version may be a bit more madcap than what the Bard had intended, this show still captures the wonder and the romance of the original play.  

Come try-out for our production A Midsummer Night’s Dream
