This semi-formal event, the first-ever fundraiser for the Mysterium Theater, promises a full evening of top-flight entertainment. First up at A Winter's Eve is a wine and appetizer reception, where you can browse and bid on silent auction items. That's followed by a seated dinner, set to include Cornish game hen, an orzo and vegetable combo, salad, dessert and hot cider, or wassail. Then you'll be treated to a musical revue featuring hits from the Great American Songbook by the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, performed by a cast of 24 of Mysterium's finest actor-singers. As a capper to this festive evening, take advantage of the quick ballroom and swing lesson, so you can dance the rest of the night away to big-band music. Learn More

A lovely evening in a beautiful outdoor setting surrounded by trees. The actors were engaging and talented, and understood the Shakespearean language well enough to be able to pull the audience into the play with humor and fantasy. A wonderful way to enjoy a Shakespeare comedy on a beautiful Midsummer eve. Congrats to the director, the cast, and Alchemy theatre on a successful first production. Looking forward to seeing more from this new group!
Quotes & Highlights
- “The accent is on comedy in Jesse Runde’s production, highlighted by a madcap choreography that makes clear the inmates have taken over the asylum.” —examiner.com
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.
