Shakespeare for the Young: Midsummer Magic

Wednesday, July 19, 2017, 10:30 a.m.

Midsummer Magic is a fun, interactive puppetry performance featuring the characters Titania and Oberon, Puck the Fairy and Bottom the Weaver from Shakespeare’s whimsical play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It is a gentle and inclusive journey for children under eight into the rich world of Shakespeare. The Bard himself makes an appearance in puppet form as the performers make this delightful fairy story accessible and exciting for young children through soft body puppetry, movement and interactive play with the audience.
