Ohio Shakespeare Festival: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Select dates July 15 - August 15

The Ohio Shakespeare Festival presents A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare in the Lagoon area of the estate. 

Gates open at 6 PM | Greenshow, 7:30 PM | Performance, 8 PM

Shakespeare's most magical and uproarious comedy. The king and queen of the faeries battle over a changeling child. Young lovers from Athens run from home to escape parental persecution. Some misfit actors attempt to put on a spectacular play. And on a midsummer's night, their stories collide in unforgettable -- and hilarious -- ways.
