Free Shakespeare for the whole family — outdoors, under the stars.

Magic and mayhem take flight in this supernatural romantic comedy. Four teenagers run away to the woods, where they encounter feuding fairies, mischievous sprites, and a group of working-class heroes just trying to put on a play. Carried away by the forest’s enchantments, they must navigate a labyrinth of love and chaos to find their “happily ever after”.

Featuring a cast of local actors and children, A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be performed outdoors, under the stars—so bring your picnic blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the magic. Select performances will feature a FREE interactive pre-show workshop for the whole family (check out our website for details).

Performances Thursday–Sunday, July 17–27 at 8pm • Springside Park, 874 North Street • Admission is FREE!
