A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The title "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," green foliage, and flowers frame a couple frolicking hand in hand, silhouetted by a large, full moon.

“Cupid is a knavish lad.”

June 3 – July 2, 2023
On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

“Cupid is a knavish lad.”

Kings, queens, fairies, lovers, and sprites all collide in an enchanted forest one midsummer night proving that “the course of true love never did run smooth.” One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies takes us on a beguiling odyssey full of mistaken identities, misguided passions, love potions, and magic spells. Fall in love all over again — but watch your step!

“There is, of course, no such thing as a foolproof play, but A Midsummer Night's Dream comes about as close as anything written in the last 400 years.” –The New York Times
