    William Shakespeare’s classic, first performed around 1596, is one of the bard’s most beloved plays. For centuries, audiences have enjoyed this comic fantasy about four lovers who find themselves bewitched by fairies and suffering strange love experiences. Four interconnecting plots are set simultaneously in the wooded realm of Fairyland, under the light of the moon. Portraying the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus to Hippolyta, an Athenian weaver who is transformed into an ass-headed monster, and the antics of Oberon and Titiana, the fairy king and queen, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an artful examination of love, jealousy, and marriage and is a delightful evening, full of wit and magical surprises. Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend More than cool reason ever comprehends. — William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream No Charge/CSU Students, $9/youth (under 18), $14/senior (62+), $18/adult
