Starting on June 1st and running through June 16th, performances of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be held every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday starting at 7:30pm.  This delightful comedy is sure to entertain the entire family with plenty of laughs, lots of Shakespearean drama, and bit of magic.

Come early to mark your spot this Friday for opening night, and if packing a picnic isn't your thing, don't worry, food will be available from Jazzeryn's Catering.
