A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Joe’s Movement Emporium, Oct 16, In Person

On Stage at Joe’s presents: A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the National Players
by William Shakespeare

Saturday October 16, 2021, at 7 pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium.

Masks are required for this in-person event.

Faeries, thespians and runaway loves all find themselves wandering the forest at night. With the fairy king and queen scheming, the lovers escaping, and the ragtag troupe of actors hastily rehearsing a show for the duke’s wedding tomorrow, what more could go wrong? When a fairy named Puck accidentally misapplies a love potion and purposefully transforms an actor into a donkey, it will take more than magic to set things right.

Get lost in the forest with the National Players in the most epic romantic entanglement of all time. A magical comedy that’s fun for children and adults alike.

Feel free to bring your own chair and any snacks you would like. Parking is available up and down the street in front of Joe’s and the residential spaces around the corner.

Tickets $15 Early; $20 General Admission; $10 Seniors, Veterans, Under 16. Click here.
