A Midsummer Night's Dream
A twister may never come to spirit you off to Oz, a wardrobe may never offer passage to Narnia, but a round-trip ticket to the realm of the fairies does exist -- it's stamped A Midsummer Night's Dream. More magical than Hogwarts, more detailed than Middle Earth, the moonlit groves of Shakespeare's beloved comedy have charmed audiences for centuries. It is in these woods that four young lovers become caught in a quarrel between the king and queen of the faeries. When a group of local rustics are mixed into the madness, the comical snarl of spells seems impossible to unknot. But with fairies and sprites all around, it just takes a little more magic and, as Puck puts it, "all is mended." Don't miss this fun and fantastic play, suitable for all ages, at the Houston Family Arts Center.
