Cleveland Shakespeare Festival opens 17th season
of free outdoor theater with
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival celebrates its 17th consecutive season of presenting free, live outdoor performances of the works of William Shakespeare to audiences in Northeast Ohio.
In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, love and magic intermingle when two couples get lost in an enchanted fairy forest on the eve of a royal wedding. At the same time, a group of rustic amateur actors rehearse a play to be performed at the wedding. Fairy mischief abounds as dreams and reality become tangled.
