The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company Presents LET'S PLAY: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Do you want to play a game? Well Shakespeare's faeries and mystical creatures are upset because last year The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company only produced one show and it wasn't even a comedy! To make up for this, they are magically forcing four of mortal actors from NYC to play a chaotic game where they must perform the roles of the Four Lovers and the Rude Mechanicals from "A Midsummer Night's Dream"! It will be a night of theatrical chaos full of music, laughter and dance! Come have fun as an audience of magical creature's plays with a group of foolish mortal performers! Please join The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company as we lovingly tear apart this timeless classic searching for romantic love while also trying to appease all things magical!

Company Information


The primary goal of The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company is to create theatre with sound. Any and all types of sound! Whether it is music, noise or symphony of emotions pouring from an actor's soul we aim to create theatre that must be heard to really be seen!

Our second goal is to use sound and technology to help push the boundaries of what live theatre can do. We aim to carry on the Off Off Broadway tradition of pushing boundaries and experimentation!

The third and most important goal of The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company is to create theatre that fights for a positive view of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation and "the underdog". We don't want our audience to just talk about what they heard after one of our shows. We want them to think about how they can make a difference in the world! We hope that our stories and our words cause action in the real world!
