Description

Written in the twilight of the 16th Century, Shakespeare’s triumphant work has withstood the test of time, making audiences laugh, cheer and hoot over the centuries. Truncated by the Puritan Age, over-inflated by the Victorian Age, and simplified in the 20th Century, Ark now brings this classic tale back to its roots.

Shakespeare lovers are already familiar with the twisting and turning plot of the Bard of Avon’s farce.  In this production, audiences will experience once again, or perhaps for the very first time, the magnificent wedding between the Duke of Athens and the Amazon Queen, they will be enchanted by the magic and revelry of the forest fairies, and they will delight in the play within the play put on by the rude mechanicals.

As Shakespeare penned, “love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.”  Everything about this production is dedicated to bring focus back to the power of Shakespeare’s words and his universally profound themes: love, identity and sexuality. Creative stage design and contemporary costumes allow Shakespeare’s legendary wit and style to take center stage.

The cast for _A Midsummer Night’s Dream _includes Kate Bergstrom, Rich Carillo, Alex Coleman, Osa Danam, Walter Gray, Adrienne Hertler, Will Hickman, Lamar Hughes, JoAnna Jocelyn, Cody Kearsley, Anna Quirino, Mattius Ramos, Brad Satterwhite, Philicia Saunders, Cooper Sivara, Fiona Sweeney, Aurea Tomeski, Letty Valladares, Sarah Watson, and Carolyn Wright.
