A Midsummer Night's Dream
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Appropriate for grades 3 and up.
Curriculum Connections: Language Arts, Shakespeare, Theatre Performance & Critique, British Writers, Poetry (Verse, Metaphor, Irony, Wit)
When starry-eyed young lovers and zany would-be actors cross paths with mischief-making fairies in a magical forest, the result is one of the world’s most uproarious comedies. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the ideal “first Shakespeare” for elementary grades, and a riotous roller-coaster ride for teens (and teachers).
Program coming soon!
