In a quest to bring audiences something truly different, the Festival presents Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a feast for the eyes, heart and funny bone. With the help of new technology, viewers are led from an elegant but earthbound palace into a magical forest where some of the inhabitants may not be bound by anything at all. It is a world where even the fools are enchanting.
The Festival’s production is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
By William Shakespeare
