A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
What fools these mortals be!
By William Shakespeare

Join director Kate Magill Robinson and the Camp Encore troupe leaders on an adventure of magic and mischief, set in the Forest of Athens, where Fools, Fairies and Folly abound! The script will use Shakespeare’s original language, combined with original music, movement, and stage combat. Teen actors will tell the story of two groups of mortals — the mismatched lovers and the hilarious amateur actors (the ‘rude mechanicals’) — who retreat to the forest, only to find it inhabited by a troupe of feuding and mischievous faeries. Will everything be set right before the royal wedding in the morning? Come find out, as we present one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies!
