Events Description

Live performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Allendale Park!

About the Show:

The course of true love never did run smooth…

Shakespeare’s beautiful comic fantasy interweaves several unlikely plots in a glorious celebration of love, life, and the magic of theatre.

Titania and Oberon are rulers of the supernatural. When they quarrel, the natural balance of the world is disturbed . Floods and fevers rage throughout Athens. Hearths turn dark, love is thwarted everywhere.

Theseus the duke plans to marry his captured foe Hippolyta – with or without her consent. Two pairs of teenagers blinded by love lose themselves deep in an enchanted forest.

Meanwhile, amateur theatre director Peter Quince must marshal his cast and manage the monstrous ego of his star performer if his masterpiece is ever to be performed. All of these stories converge on Midsummer’s eve, when the boundaries between our world and the world of dreams blur and intermingle.
