William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night’s Dream

JULY 7 - AUGUST 1 | Air Products Open Air Theatre

Shakespeare's Enchanting Comedy

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Matt Pfeiffer

JULY 7 - AUGUST 1 | Air Products Open Air Theatre

In their escape from court to an enchanted forest, mismatched lovers encounter mischievous fairies in Shakespeare’s masterfully orchestrated comedy. The trickster Puck trips up the lovers as the king and queen of the fairies mingle with a clownish Athenian craftsman and his band of hapless players, yielding a magical night of moonlit merriment and revelry. Barrymore Award-winning director Matt Pfeiffer returns following critically acclaimed PSF productions of Twelfth Night, As You Like It, and The Taming of the Shrew, hailed as “the region’s most reliable director of William Shakespeare.” The Bard evokes a brilliant world of wonder in this delightful comedy, a midsummer night’s dream come true. Ages 7+
