We have had four fantastic nights in the Grove so far. A Midsummer Night's Dream is a huge hit with adults and kids, first-time attendees and Shakespeare in the Grove veterans. Here are just two quotes from audience members who have made multiple visits to Shakespeare in the Grove over the past ten years: 

"This might be the best production ARTFARM has done.  From beginning to end, a feast.  Aside from a lot of really good acting, it is an entire space visual treat." 

"This was my favorite Shakespeare show ever!"

What about if it rains? Well, we will perform the show rain or shine -- we have a rain location indoors on campus. If a rainy night happens to be your only opportunity to see the play, definitely come and see it indoors. You will see a great play. However, if one of the other nights works for you, come see A Midsummer Night's Dream outdoors in the Grove! This play is full of circus artistry, flying, magic and illusion involving the set -- lots of visual, aerial and acrobatic loveliness that simply does not translate indoors
