A Midsummer Night's Dream


The Adirondack Lakes Summer Theatre Festival combines guest artists with performers from our region to tour professional-level theatre productions around the Adirondack Park. Performances at various venues as noted. Curtain times may vary.



A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare

Don't miss our "Shakespeare in the Parks" production of 2022, A Midsummer Night's Dream! This abridged version (to run about an hour) will be OUTDOORS and FREE. Four Athenian lovers – Lysander, Demetrius, Hermia, and Helena – run away to a magic forest, only to fall victim to the schemes of a mischievous fairy named Puck. Between mistaken identities and truly Shakespearean shenanigans, this classic tale takes on new life through our Summer Theatre Festival, touring the Adirondacks this July/August.
