Event Details

Set against the seedy underbelly of Prohibition, this show is sexy, gritty, and dark. The scene is set with a secret pre-show, burlesque performers, and a secret Speakeasy, and you will never look at the Fairies, Lovers, and Mechanicals the same way again. Think Moulin Rouge meets Shakespeare.

Four Athenians (Hermia, Lysander, Helena, and Demetrius) run away to the forest only to have Puck the Fairy make both of the boys fall in love with the same girl. The four-run through the forest, pursuing each other. Meanwhile, Puck helps his master (Oberon) play a trick on the fairy queen (Titania) – by making her fall in love with the abrasive leader of an amateur theatre troupe trying to rehearse a play for the King and Queen of Athens… whom he’s turned into a donkey. In the end, Puck reverses the magic, the two couples reconcile and marry, and the Fairies retreat back to the forest once more. Mischief and mayhem ensue when four young lovers run away to the forest and find themselves tangled in a war between the Fairy King & Queen. Add in a troupe of hapless actors trying to rehearse a performance for the rulers of their city and a serious case of mistaken identity, and chaos reigns until the sun comes up again.

Tickets go on sale June 1.
