Text Dive: A Midsummer Night's Dream
Shakespeare's magical, nature-based comedy, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, is the first play Summit Players Theatre ever produced! In 2015, we brought this fairy-filled play to 13 different Wisconsin state parks, and we produced it again in 2016 along with AS YOU LIKE IT.
What made A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM the perfect first show for the Summit Players? Learn more about one of Shakespeare's most recognizable plays with Summit Players Theatre board member and former Executive Director Hannah Klapperich-Mueller and special guest Todd Denning!
