A comedy written by William Shakespeare: a royal marriage, four young lovers, a group of six amateur actors — all controlled and manipulated by fairies in the forest. Was it all a dream?
Nov 3-5 at 7pm and Nov 6 at 2pm
More information to come as production approaches.
A hysterical, sprawling, action-packed drama that challenges and reinvents the myth. Includes a wise-cracking, superior swords person in Marian, and a Robin who only by chance finds himself a hero. But true to the legend, of course, all ends well: The Sheriff’s scheme to wed and bed young Ellen fizzles, King John’s vicious taxes are rescinded, the Sherwood Foresters are finally legitimized, and a justice descends on England’s green and pleasant land.
May 5-7 at 7pm and May 8 at 2pm
Tickets at the door: $5 seniors/students, $10 general public
