The story, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is one of William Shakespeare’s popular comedies. In a magical forest near Athens, fairies, goblins, lovers and would-be tragedians all meet, mix and mingle, thanks to mistaken identities, magical potions, jealousy and love - especially, love at first sight! Shakespeare’s most frequently performed comedy has it all: angry fathers, runaway daughters, jilted lovers, royal weddings, feuding fairy kings and queens, tragedy, comedy, a braying donkey, and a mischievous fellow named Puck! Join us for a romp through a magical wood where we see “what fools these mortals be!”.
The event is recommended for ages 12 years and up. The 90-minute staged reading is without intermission. Parking is available in the Civic Center parking structure, adjacent to the library on Rexford Drive.
