Boomerang Theatre Company's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM Begins Tonight

The award-winning Boomerang Theatre Company and Artistic Director Tim Errickson, have announced their production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM by William Shakespeare, directed by John Greenleaf (The Acting Company, Steppenwolf, Australian Elizabethan Theatre; Co-founder Shakespeare on the Hudson), as part of the company's 15 years presenting exceptional outdoor theatre.

"We're very excited to continue our partnership with Central Park in 2014. A Midsummer Night's Dream is always such a fun show to produce, and we know our audiences will have a terrific time seeing Shakespeare's lovers try to sort out their romantic passions", shares Artistic Director Tim Errickson.

Love, jealousy, and meddling parents force four teenagers to flee to the forest, right into the middle of a hissy fit between the King and Queen of the fairyland. Can the right pairs of lovers find each other?
