Now Playing At CRT
A Midsummer Night’s Dream

April 23 - May 3, 2015

By William Shakespeare
Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre


The season ends with William Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, an imaginative and fantastic romp about love and its many complications.  As the Duke of Athens prepares to wed his Amazonian queen, four lovers flee from their overbearing parents into an enchanted forest, where they become unknowingly embroiled in the battle between high-spirited sprites Oberon and Titania, the king and queen of the faeries.  The delightfully, madcap antics of Shakespeare’s cast of characters provides a magical exploration of love, lust and marriage and illustrates just how other worldly love can be.
