A Midsummer Night’s Dream
August 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until August 8, 2021
On what would have been our 15th anniversary of shows we are back with a classic Shakespearean comedy. This production will be done script in hand due to the limited time and Covid-19 restrictions but we’ll have as much fun as ever! Hermia and Lysander run away to marry and are pursued by Demetrius (who loves Hermia) and Helena (who loves Demetrius). The lovers become entangled in a feud between the King and Queen of the Fairies turning their lives upside down. The enchanted forest is also host to a band of very amateur actors rehearsing a play starring a oddly transformed Bottom the weaver. When the bungling sprite Puck begins to meddle, all are tossed into a marvelous mix-up of mistaken identity, magical happenings and happy endings. Audiences have loved this romantic comedy for centuries! What better place to enjoy a Midsummer Dream than in our own enchanted forest, beautiful Queen’s Park, New Westminster.
