Shakespeare in the Gardens

August 1st, 2nd & 3rd

This event will host a three night and one children's matinee, theatre performance of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream performed by Wausau's Out of the Woods theatre group.  

Though this play by William Shakespeare be but more than 400 years old, its comedy & themes of love are timeless.  A Midsummer Night’s Dream centers around four couples and small troupe of actors who become entangled in a fairy dream world in the woods.  Meddling fairies, spurned lovers and play within a play show us “the course of true love never did run smooth.”
