Homeschool Days

Join us for our Midsummer Night’s Dream Homeschool Day on Thursday, May 14.

Enter a world of lovers and fairies in our 90-minute adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. With a mischievous Puck and the course of true love running anything but smoothly, this is a hilarious comedy with lots of heart. In our paired 90-minute workshop, join Bottom and the rest of the rude mechanicals in an exploration of the clues in Shakespeare’s text that help an actor bring characters to life! Participants will use these embedded stage directions to help them play multiple characters from Midsummer.
Recommended for ages 7+. No babysitting will be provided.
