A Midsummer Nights Dream

June | Location: TBD

Director: TBD

Choreographer: TBD


In this dark adaptation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," the mystical forest of Athens becomes a haunting realm where ancient forces of nature hold sway over mortal lives. As the Duke of Athens plans his marriage to the Queen, the lines between reality and nightmare blur under the influence of the mischievous Puck and the vengeful fairy king, Oberon.

In this twisted world, love becomes a dangerous game, as spells are cast, hearts are manipulated, and desires spiral out of control. Lovers are ensnared in a web of deceit and passion, while the mechanicals, seeking solace from the darkness, stumble upon secrets that could shatter the fragile balance between the mortal and supernatural realms.

Amidst the eerie glow of moonlit glades and the whispers of ancient spirits, "A Dark Midsummer Night's Dream" explores the depths of human longing, the capriciousness of fate, and the transformative power of love, all set against a backdrop of shadows and enchantment.
