Overview of the play- A Midsummer Night's Dream:

Escape into Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, where four mismatched lovers woo, a group of aspiring thespians rehearse a play, and the rulers of the fairy kingdom have a royal rumble all within the same woods on the same night, with hilarious results. This particular production is set in East Tennessee and will feature a little bit of all the things that make our mountains and their woods so special: Dolly (of course!), mountain spirits, bluegrass music, and a lot of good ol' fashioned fun. Perfect for the whole family and one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, A Midsummer Night's Dream is sure to delight!
