Free Shakespeare in the Park

June 7 – 23, 2019

Thursdays – Sundays at 7:00pm
Willow Street Park

    Willow Street Park              

The course of true love never did run smooth.

Love is even more complicated when you add magic! While the king and queen of the fairies, Oberon and Titania are quarreling, Oberon’s right-hand sprite, Puck, is ready for mischief… and with humans such as the young Athenian lovers running about and the troupe of amateur actors trying to rehearse a play for the Duke’s nuptial day in the middle of the fairy’s forest, it couldn’t be easier. Silicon Valley Shakespeare’s all-female cast presents this family friendly comedy full of whimsy and wonder for FREE in Willow St. Park!

In connection with a new partnership between SVS and Montalvo Arts Center (MAC), a 6:00p.m. performance of Midsummer is also scheduled for July 14th at MAC in Saratoga.

For those of you who would like a more in-depth look at Midsummer, we have this handy  Study Guide for your reading enjoyment AND a fun  time-lapse video as one of our actresses transforms from human to fairy.
