Shakespeare in the Gardens

August 1st, 2nd & 3rd

Bring your blankets or chairs and get comfortable for a lovely evening watching a theater performance of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream performed by Wausau's Out of the Woods theater 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.”

Food, beer, wine and pop will be available for purchase each evening.  Chairs and blankets welcomed.  No tents, dogs, outside food or drink allowed.

Water will be available at no cost-just bring a water bottle/cup or you can purchase a Monk Gardens water bottle.

Tickets can be purchased online at the link below or at the door.
