There were just a couple of slow parts in the show, but overall, it was entertaining and the actors/singers were very talented! It was a fun and unique performance. We recommend it!

Lovely little production. I was wondering how they would make it a musical. The play is interjected with songs that emphasize the emotion of the scenes. Very well done. Great little theater too.

The best part was how well they worked the songs into the plot. The only problem was that several of the actors were difficult to understand.

The play was very enjoyable, it was hilarious! Had many very funny moments and the 60s songs were well intergrated in the plot. Brought my son and his fiancee, in their 30s, they laughed a lot and surprisingly liked it. The cast was fabulous and...continued

True to Shakespeare, and true to the music of the 50s and 60s. I laughed so hard when Titania sang "Earth Angel" to Bottom in his ass disguise, and Puck was definitely a "Wild Child." It's lots of fun. Go if you can!

A Midsummer Night's Dream ranks among my least favorite of Shakespeare's plays.... but this production was fresh, exuberant, monumentally inventive, and just plain fun. Kudos to the director, choreographer, and multi-talented actors. This is our...continued

Great show. Lots of laughs too. Would have been better if one of the lead actors had not left just before opening night. His stand in was very good but had to have the script with him. Would recommend this show.

I have seen Midsummer Night's Dream many times and this one was the most entertaining and fun to watch. Bottoms had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes, and I also enjoyed the songs. A great version to bring someone who is not familiar...continued

My 16 year old niece and I really enjoyed the show. Totally not what we expected but in a good way. Some technical difficulties with sound but that's what these preview shows are for- to work out all the kinks. The music was great, the singing was...continued
