Athens Pride is going to be the hottest, gaggiest, best Pride in the history of Pride, especially with Theseus and Hippolyta, literal queer icons, closing the festival with their nuptials- the wedding of the century! Anyone who is anyone is going to be there. But, when the lovers' feud of King and Queen of the Fairies, Oberon and Titania, spills over, things are going to get real messy. Using the original text of Shakespeare's most legendary comedy, this story is getting a queer, fabulous twist that only Tier5 could do!

Note: Elements of the show will be immersive, they are not interactive. We ask all patrons to respect the actors as they move through the space.

CW Warning: Mature and sexual themes.

Recommended for ages 13+



General admission tickets are $30 each, with no assigned seating.

For each performance, a limited number of $10 tickets will be available. We encourage those who can afford to purchase the full-price ticket to reserve these $10 tickets for those who may need more financial assistance. No assigned seating.

Midsummer Madness. Puck is causing a bit of mischief and for our performances outside of our usual schedule (Sunday, August 18th at 7pm and Thursday, August 22nd at 2pm) all general admission tickets will be $15.

Tickets are non-refundable. If you are unable to make your performance, we may be able to transfer your ticket to another show, based on availability.
