Following a one-year hiatus, Mount Royal University’s Shakespeare in the Park returns to Prince’s Island Park for its 25th anniversary and a five-night performance run of Shakespearian classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Set in a magical forest—Prince’s Island Park—the play follows the romantic intrigues of four Athenian lovers and a troupe of actors who are put under a spell and manipulated by the faeries of the forest. The production features a cast composed of Mount Royal Theatre Arts students and is directed by Victoria’s Belfry Theatre artistic director Michael Shamata.
Performances run Wed to Sun until Aug 10 at 7 pm. Weekend matinees at 2 pm. Weather permitting. No performances July 25 – 29. Admission is by donation.
