A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
By William Shakespeare
SEP 14–OCT 1, 2023
Festival Stage | Recommended Ages 10+
Directed by Rick Dildine
ASF Artistic Director Rick Dildine brings Shakespeare’s classic comedy to life with a dazzling production. Four young lovers facing the prospect of an unhappy marriage escape into a magical forest. Nearby, a fairy king and queen are engaged in a war of wills, and a crew of amateur actors is rehearsing for a royal wedding. One wily sprite intent on mischief has orders to intervene. What could possibly go wrong? Set within a child’s attic, this production fosters wild imagination and uses live music throughout.
