Midsummer Dream

August 9, 2017 to August 12, 2017

"If we shadows have offended, Think but this, and all is mended: That you have but slumbered here, While these visions did appear..."

In August the Paine's gardens will come to life with the characters and scenes from Shakespeare's fantastical play, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The "theater-in-the-round" performances will engage audiences in a world of fairies, kings and queens, and magical spells. Especially intended for children, this fun and interactive theatrical experience will reveal the wonder of William Shakespeare's lyricism, imagination, and brilliance.
