"I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was."

Featuring an exuberant array of music, dance, and visual surprises, a fresh new vision for Shakespeare's most popular comedy features a world constructed almost entirely of objects that would normally be on their way to a landfill. Delight in seeing how the inventive bands of fairies transform trash into whimsical treasure. Transform the classroom to the stage as art, nature, and the ancient tradition of theatre all come together!

Studying Shakespeare's texts is not only a study in rich language and drama, but also a study in various themes that highlight our shared humanity. His works incorporate themes that are universally relevant and timeless, which is why he continues to be an important playwright to this day.
