A Midsummer Night's Dream

Director: Heidi Spiker
Performances: July 17th - 26th
Rehearsals: May 18th - July 26th
Cascades Theatre

Registration is TBA

Magical flowers, fairy feuds, conquered Amazonians, rebellious daughters, a controlling father, and a simple band of players; the world of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is abundant with misdeeds and mischief. The play explores the collision of young love and old ways; the conflict between stubborn refusals and jealous actions; and the humble efforts of some, for the opulent ceremonies of others. And, ultimately there is just a lot of running around in the woods, which I promise you will be really fun to watch.

Please join us for Shakespeare's good-hearted comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. This production will be an excellent way to introduce actors to the world and language of Shakespeare. No previous experience necessary!
