Hermia is in love with Lysander but she has been promised by her father to another suitor, Demetrius, who is also infatuated with her. When Hermia refuses to marry Demetrius, her father offers her three choices; marring the man he chose, death, or the nunnery. Instead, Hermia and Lysander decide to escape to the forest in the hopes of finding happiness together. But Demetrius takes pursuit of them, followed by Helena, Hermia’s friend, who pines for Demetrius without reciprocation.

Meanwhile, Oberon, the fairy king, orders his servant Puck to apply a magical juice from a flower called “love-in-idleness,” to the eyelids of Demetrius. When awaking, Demetrius would fall in love with her first person he sees. Unfortunately, Puck mistakes Lysander for Demetrius and Lysander wakes up to find Helena and falls madly in love with her. Puck rectifies his mistake by making Demetrius also fall in love with Helena. The suitors are still fighting, but over the wrong girl…

When love and fairies meet, a magical story unfolds leading to romance and hilarity.

Shakespeare-in-the-Park will celebrate its 25th season with William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Amanda Kellock.

One of the most beloved plays by William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has something for absolutely everyone: lovers in a dangerous time, spooky woods, fighting fairies, mistaken identities, hardworking men in makeup, love and laughter, music, magic and mayhem, and all the excitement that comes when friendship and love are pushed to their limits.

This fantastical production will feature actors from seasons past as well as fresh and talented up-and-comers. Don’t miss this special staging of a play that practically invented the concept of setting Shakespeare in a park!
