Video: First Look At Queens Shakespeare & What Dreams May Co.'s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

After another critically acclaimed season with productions of Henry VI parts I, II, and III and the smash hit Godspell Queens Shakespeare and What Dreams May Co. return to the stage for presentations of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Bare (Book and Music: Damon Intrabartolo, Book and Lyrics: Jon Hartmere).

Join us for a season of epic stories. The first is one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies about running away in search of love and finding yourself (except for those who don't). The other a musical tale of two modern star-crossed lovers that as they struggle to come to terms with who they are, and who the world thinks they should be, seek answers from their church, their friends, and ultimately from within themselves. First up is William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Director Jonathan Emerson's modern fairytale design borrows from both Western and Eastern oral storytelling traditions to transport audiences alongside our young lovers (and everyone's favorite Athenian community theater troupe), to a dark fantasy forest. The mortal and the faery worlds collide in the twilight realm as Oberon and Titania fight, the dazzle of their Faeries sparkle bright, and one and all are spellbound by the shenanigans of a certain merry wanderer of the night. Join us as we explore the ways in which an epic story can remind us of where we've come from, teach us, and sometimes ultimately...save us.

Featuring: Bryan Bryk, Justin Chiao, Jonathan Emerson, Lisa LaGrande, Samantha Leigh, Ashleigh Markin, Josh McLemore, Dante Montogmery, Chase O'Neill, Anuj Parikh, Matthew Pohlman, Ayesha Saleh, Christina Sheehan, Shadie Thompson, Allie Wing
