The Arc is excited to commemorate its 10th year at Shakespeare on the Ridge with the show that started it all: "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Starry-eyed young lovers and a couple of ambitious actors escape the rigid world of Athens and enter into a magical wood inhabited by spectacular faeries who's lust for mischief is fueled by their own torrid romance. Perfectly suited to Shakespeare on the Ridge's outdoor stage at twilight, this re-imagined adaptation of Shakespeare's most famous comedy is Arc at its best.

The production team for A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM includes: Stage Manager Taran Snodgress, Set Designer Cailin Short*, Costume Designer Hailey Rakowiecki, Casting and Producing Director Teddy Boone*, and Assistant Director Daniel Sappington*.
