Mischief meets merriment in William Shakespeare’s popular fairy-themed comedic play, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. In just one night, four magical stories are cleverly woven together: the marriage of the Athenian duke to the Amazon queen; the battle of the king and queen of the fairies; the follies of four lovers in a forest; and the hilarious antics of amateur actors staging a play. Enter a vibrant world where fairies play and a love potion makes your perspective turn on a dime.
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM features a talented cast of seventeen students between the ages of eleven and fourteen. Cast members of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM reside in Wellesley as well as neighboring communities including Concord, Natick and Weston.
