A Midsummer Night’s Dream– one of Shakespeare’s most beloved and witty comedies, is brought to vivid life in an innovative new production by the Aquila Theatre.
Full of memorable characters- Puck, Oberon, Hermia, and Nick Bottom- and the famous “play within a play”, A Midsummer Night’s Dream deals with the universal theme of love, and its attendant complications: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion, and marriage. Aquila Theatre weaves a web of theatrical magic that takes audiences to the heart of an enchanted forest while witnessing the injustice of the Athenian court and the political strife of the fairy kingdom.
Aquila’s signature physical theatre style of beautiful movement, combined with music and song and some of the finest Shakespearean acting today, produces an unforgettable Dream. A promise of “nightly revels and new jollity”.
*One complimentary Teacher ticket is offered for every 25 student tickets purchased.
