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

This was a lot of fun to see! The actors performed well, and Alchemy chose a beautiful outdoor theater for this play. Just bring bug repellent and a seat cushion, as you sit on benches near a lake in the park.

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!

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.”  —


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.
