"A Midsummer Night's Dream: Fairies & Fools!"

"A Midsummer Night's Dream: Fairies & Fools!"

Fairytale Town  is proud to present SHAKESPERIMENT 2011, a new extension of their popular and successful Fairytale Town Troupers program. The first production will be a brand new one act adaptation of William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream: Fairies & Fools!",  featuring young actors ages 12 to 21. 

This innovative and original production focuses on the disharmony between the King and Queen of Fairyland and a group of bumbling actors who unwittingly cross their paths. It's a fun and family friendly romp filled with music, magic, mirth and mayhem.

When: Saturdays & Sundays, Feb. 19, 20, 26, 27
Time: 12:00p.m.
