A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
By William Shakespeare
On the eve of a royal wedding, a quartet of lovers and a motley group of amateur actors visit a fairy-filled forest. When the worlds of mortals and fairies intersect, expect mischief. Bring a picnic and share an enchanting night of romantic comedy under the stars in the PFI Historic Park, Ellicott City, our festival-style summer theatre home.
Thanks to generous underwriters and media partners, children’s tickets will be FREE for A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Advance reservations are recommended, as these performances are expected to sell out. Limit: two free children’s tickets (for ages 18 and under) with each paid adult ticket.
