Silly, fantastical, and oh so fun, A Midsummer Night’s Dream invites our Stars to broaden their skillsets with Shakespeare. Featuring mischievous fairies, star-crossed lovers, and an amateur troupe of nincompoops, it will take more than words to bring these colorful characters to life. Stars will focus on classic and contemporary acting techniques before performing Shakespeare in the park on the new Riverside Park Bandshell!
