A Midsummer Night's Dream opens July 30 at TheatreWorks
The new theatre season opens next week as TheatreWorks presents a brand new interpretation of that most magical of Shakespeare's plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream. This version promises to be especially magical, with hip-hopping fairies and the enchanting atmosphere of the Rock Ledge Ranch.
Showtimes are 7:30pm Tuesdays through Sundays through August 22. To get to the venue, head into Garden of the Gods park and turn left at the first driveway, which leads to the parking lot for Rock Ledge Ranch. Signs will direct you to the tent where the performance is taking place.
Oh, and this month we get not one but two Prologue Lectures. Nationally renowned artistic directors Tina Packer and Jon Jory are back once more, this time to discuss the state of the American theatre and women in Shakespeare's plays. This starts at 6:00pm on Monday, August 3 in the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theatre.
That same night, at Rock Ledge Ranch, TheatreWorks artistic director Murray Ross will give a short talk about A Midsummer Night's Dream and Shakespeare in the Tent. This starts at 6:30pm.
See you there!
