Orlando Shakes kicks off their return to Lake Eola with a production of the Shakespeare’s beloved romcom, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at the Walt Disney Amphitheater.
When magical, mischief-maker Puck gets a hold of a love potion, he sets in motion all the comical antics that arise from four young lovers’ adventure through the woods.
Audiences will be immersed in a land of fairies featuring glittering lights and gilded foliage. Dazzling and romantic verse defines Shakespeare’s classic comedy that charms everyone who enters its mystical realm.
Meet the cast:
Alongside Director Jim Helsinger, A Midsummer Night Dream‘s creative team includes Associate Director Joshian Morales, Scenic Designer Bert Scott, Lighting Designer Philip Lupo, Costume Designer Denise R. Warner, Sound Designer Britt Sandusky, and Vocal Coach Vivan Majkowski.
Orlando Shakes in partnership with UCF gained approval from the national professional actors union, the Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), for this production.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is presented at Lake Eola by Massey Services, with additional support from A. Brian Phillips, P.A.; Computer Business Consultants; and Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Children. This project is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
