A Midsummer Night’s Dream | McLaren Park
Free Shakespeare in the Park performed by SF Shakes. This summer’s production is A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Bring your family, friends, a blanket and a picnic to enjoy free professional theater in a beautiful park setting! A Midsummer Nights’ Dream is a family favorite because whether or not you can follow the plot, there are lots of funny scenes and characters. Admission is free.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream follows the misadventures of four young lovers, a group of aspiring actors, and a team of mischievous fairies as they all enter the woods outside Athens on a summer night. The ensuing hilarity and chaos create an evening filled with love and laughter.
SF Shakes Family Friendly Green Show
Come early for the 15-minute educational green show 30 minutes before every Free Shakespeare in the Park performance. These fun, irreverent original plays give the audience a chance to learn more about the Free Shakespeare production, including historical context, important themes, and Shakespeare’s use of language in a family-friendly format.
Recurring characters such as Queen Elizabeth, Richard Burbage, and Shakespeare himself make an appearance in every show, and audience members always have an opportunity to join the fun with interactive games and musical interludes.
