A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Auditions

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
By William Shakespeare

Directed by Elisabeth Campbell

One of the world’s most famous love stories, perhaps even the one of the first romantic comedies, William Shakespeare makes his Levoy Theatre debut with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. When a feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play, their disputes grows. The magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations…anything can happen in a magical moonlit forest…
