First performed around 1596, Shakespeare’s comic fantasy, about a group of humans who find themselves bewitched by fairies, is a sly reckoning with love, jealousy and marriage. For centuries, it’s been one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays.

Discover what happens when Greek lovers and amateur actors get lost in a forest inhabited by naughty, magical creatures.

Enter an enchanting fantasy world as we transform our intimate Black Box Theatre as never seen before. This whimsical full production will delight all ages!
