A Midsummer Night's Dream
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Paul Mason Barnes
October 15 - November 9
Magic, merriment and romance all unite in one of Shakespeare’s most beloved and imaginative comedies. Starry-eyed lovers escape to an enchanted forest full of lust and bewitchment, where mischievous fairies play tricks, bumbling actors rehearse for a love-play and couples pursue one another, all under the light of the moon.
