REV Theatre Company offers free, outdoor performances of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM on July 14 and 15. REV has presented the production In New York, Philadelphia and Connecticut to more than six thousand people.
These performances are offered free to audiences as part of REV’s commitment to developing new audiences for classical theatre.
This production is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare and is guaranteed to appeal to every member of the family, with its potent brew of fantasy, romance and fun. This production is recommended for children of all ages.
Under a real midsummer night’s sky, love-struck mortals, stage-struck mechanicals and feuding fairies (who also sing and dance) collide one fateful night in a magical forest – of ladders, kiddy pools and a fairy bower provide the setting for REV’s adaptation.
REV’s contemporary, updated production blends outrageously colorful costumes with urban street chic and a glam-rock Puck along with athletic staging and musical numbers ranging from the 1930’s – Makin’ Whoopee, the 1950’s – Mr. Sandman; and the 1960’s – Dusty Springfield’s I Only Want To Be With You.
Bring blankets or chairs and a picnic to enjoy before the performance!
Rain dates: July 21 and 22.
