SHAKESPEARE’S A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM – OCT 26, 27, NOV 2, 3, 9, 10

The Live Oak Drama Guild presents: Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Performances will be held on Oct 26 & 27, Nov 2, 3, 9, and 10, all at 8pm. This is Shakespeare's most popular comedy. On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy. Tickets can be purchased on the LO Drama Guild web site. Questions? Contact Andrew Cummings at cummingsa@mhusd.org.
