A Midsummer Night's Dream

Rehearsals begin January 5 ~ Performance March 28

Help us bring to life Shakespeare’s best-loved play in signature SHAK style! Our kid-friendly adaptation of the script focuses on the funniest and most delightful parts of the story, in the Bard’s own words. Wearing glorious period costume, cast members act the parts of the warring fairy courts of Oberon and Titania, or of hilariously bumbling would-be actors lost in the woods. The script is enriched, in true Elizabethan style, with songs from Shakespeare's time accompanied by period instruments.

*About SHAK's boy scholarships:

These days, boys and men are often underrepresented in the arts of drama, dance, and singing, and may be reluctant to sign up. We want to encourage you to give these historical arts a try! SHAK programs tend to draw together a varied mix of creative, strong-minded, curious young people who often find a unique sense of community together across categories of age and gender. Boys attending a SHAK theater, dance, or singing program are invited to take a first-time 15% discount off your tuition level. Kids who identify themselves outside of binary gender are also welcome to use this scholarship.

Need-based financial aid is always available for anyone, so please don’t hesitate to ask. 

At SHAK we know that everyone benefits when our programs are accessible, diverse, and welcoming!
