    A Midsummer Night's Dream
    By William Shakespeare
    Adapted and Directed by David Grapes
    Original Music by Alan L. Miller and Danny Strimer
    Aerial Choreography by Andrea Moon
    Langworthy Theatre

    Our modern take on this classic will transport audiences to the enchanted rain forest during Carnival - where fairies live in trees and lines are blurred between fairies, musicians and a noble lord and lady, as we follow the interwoven story lines of four young lovers, a troupe of madcap auto mechanics turned actors and the fairies, who toy with all their fates. Our cast will feature a talented mix of comedians, actors, improvisers, dancers, aerialists and musicians, making for a unique rendition of one of Shakespeare’s most captivating comedies. This production reinvents the Bard’s classic in an interactive, accessible and light way. It will appeal to the most avid Shakespeare fan, as well as to those experiencing a live play for the first time. We look forward to seeing you in the forest!
