Academy Presents: American Shakespeare Center: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Screen Shot 2019-07-25 at 10.07.32 AM.png

Direct from the Blackfriars Playhouse, the American Shakespeare Center on Tour delivers seriously fun Shakespeare to Lynchburg, VA!

ASC on Tour invites audiences to enjoy shows that are produced as Shakespeare’s company performed them – surrounded by audience members who share the same light with the actors, each of whom play multiple roles. This highly interactive style allows ASC on Tour to forge a sense of community between performers and audience rarely found in theatre today and enables audiences to understand and enjoy these classic works.

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare casts a theatrical spell powerful enough to make audiences of all ages believe in anything. This mischievous comedy of lovers, heroes, fairies, and rude mechanicals is his tribute to humankind’s power of imagination and reveals that the “course of true love” can alter with just one touch of magic.
This show is recommended for audiences 7+.
