425-year-old magic, mirth and mayhem on Mills Lawn

Faeries and asses, music and magic, enchantment and engagement all come together this weekend as the Yellow Springs Theater Company mounts the final performances of Shakespeare’s most appropriate “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21, at 8 p.m. on Mills Lawn School’s back lawn, rain or shine. Music, including Mendelssohn’s incidental music for the play, begins about 20 minutes earlier.

The outdoor performance runs well into the dark, so bring blankets, bug spray, a flashlight and possibly an umbrella or two, just in case.

Read a review of the production by Lauren “Chuck” Shows in this week’s News, who writes that “YSTC’s production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is a joy. At least on opening night, the laughs began the second Hippolyta stormed on stage, and didn’t end until Puck asked for our hands in friendship.”
