Free Shakespeare in the Park 2018: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Redwood City, CA fullcalendar

August 11-26; Saturdays at 7pm & Sundays at 4pm

The San Francisco Shakespeare Festival is proud to present our 2018 Free Shakespeare in the Park production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

After producing 'Hamlet' in 2017 to celebrate our 35th Anniversary Season, the company turns to funnier fare with one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. Evening shows will have an earlier start time of 7:00 pm this year, making it easier for families with younger children to enjoy this family-friendly production.

'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 meet in the woods outside of Athens on a summer night. The ensuing hilarity and chaos create an evening filled with love and laughter.

Audiences can further their enjoyment of this production and learn more about 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' by attending a 15-minute Green Show, 30 minutes before the performance. This fun and informative presentation also provides an opportunity for kids to get onstage with the actors!

See the show described by the SF Chronicle's Lily Janiak as one that "might well inspire many a belief in fairies or rekindle one for those who have lost it." No tickets or reservations are needed for these complimentary shows. Bring your family and friends, a blanket, and a picnic to enjoy professional theater at no charge in a beautiful park setting.

"Free Shakespeare in the Park has become a highly anticipated summer tradition in Redwood City," says Toby Leavitt, Executive Director of San Francisco Shakespeare Festival. "We look forward to greeting newcomers as well as fans who've been attending since our first season in Redwood City in 2012."
