A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The Theatre of Western Springs and The Children’s Theatre of Western springs present “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare. This event features shows by the TWS Adult Actives program and shows by the CTWS High School Repertory program Thursdays through Sundays in June. Please see the schedule below.

All performances take place on our newly built outdoor stage at TWS, 4384 Hampton, Western Springs. All performances are “BYOC” (bring your own chair). Masks are required and seating will be limited and socially distanced. The play runs approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

For centuries, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ has been one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, performed around the world. The play is set in Athens, and consists of several subplots that revolve around the marriage of Duke Theseus and Hippolyta. One subplot involves a conflict among four Athenian lovers. Another follows a group of six amateur actors rehearsing the play which they are to perform before the wedding. Both groups find themselves in a forest inhabited by fairies who manipulate the humans and are engaged in their own domestic intrigue.

For the TWS performances, tickets are currently only available for TWS Subscribers. Subscribers have this play included in their subscription and can pick a performance on our website. When single tickets are available for the TWS performances, information will be posted on our website and on our social media.
