Monson Arts and Center Theatre are partnering to support the return of Camden Shakespeare Festival July 22nd!
Perhaps Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, the remarkable A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM is a dream come true. When four lovers flee to the forest to sort out their romantic problems, they accidentally get mixed up in a feud between the King and Queen of the fairies. Fantastical love potions abound, making hilarious chaos of their amorous intentions. Add to this a man magically turned into a donkey, who becomes beloved of the Fairy Queen, and you have a midsummer night you will never forget.
“Our production will be a surreal delight,” says director Stephen Legawiec, “with hand carved-masks and live music. As for the fairy world, the audience will become part of the dream themselves. It will be absolutely fun and unforgettable.”
Date: Saturday July 22nd, (Rain Date Sunday July 23rd) 2:00pm
