The weather was nice but chilly evening breeze. I wore jeans, sweater, and bring a pillow if our "bottom" needs comfort.

Loved the outdoor setting and was thrilled with the performances! I'm not a huge fan of Shakespeare, but I was laughing throughout this production and I understood everything. Thank you, Alchemy! I'll be back!

Description

A perennial audience favorite, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of the Bard’s most celebrated and fantastical comedies, in which a father’s stubbornness sends a foursome of confused young lovers — Hermia (Chelsea Harvey), Lysander (Jeff Lowe), Helena (Lila Bassior) and Demetrius (Daniel Conder) — to flee into the forest, where fairies lie in wait. Unbeknownst to them, the fairy king and queen (Don Formaneck, Tiffany Berg) are there engaged in a battle royale. Their quarrel temporarily throws things out of joint not only for the lovers, but also for a band of roguish actors who gather for a rehearsal.
