Performed by our Ensemble group
(girls in grades 6-9)
With the backdrop of an enchanted forest, our Ensemble girls (grades 6-9) are taking on Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM with an abridged and accessible version that’s fun for the whole family — whether they’re a Shakespeare connoisseur or have never even heard of him. In this fun and silly fairytale, comic confusions (and a lot of naps) help prove that “the course of true love never did run smooth.”
