About A Midsummer Night's Dream

The jewel in the Shakespeare comedy crown is set to take you on a riotous ride through the interwoven world of Lovers, Fairies and Fools. See the gardens lit up at night, glowing and sparkling beyond your wildest imaginings while you reel with laughter as you witness the comedy that is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.

When the feuding king and queen of the fairies cross paths with a quartet of runaway lovers and a group of tradesmen come amateur actors attempting to rehearse a play, one night in the enchanted forest becomes one wild ride! As the fairies magically meddle in the lives of the mortals, love triangles and transformations begin to occur with hilarious consequences!
