Spend a midsummer night in A Midsummer Night’s Dream – as Shakespeare in the Park brings the Bard to Redwood City.
Shakespeare’s fanciful tale of love gone awry and come right again, comes to the Sequoia High School campus for three nights, and three days too: Saturdays at 7pm, August 11th, 18th and 25th – and Sundays at 4pm, August 12th, 19th and 26th.
Midsummer Night’s Dream might be the original rom-com – a tale in which, “the course of true love never did run smooth,” yet in the end, “so shall all the couples three/ever true in loving be.”
All the shows are free – outdoors under the stars, or the sun (depending on when you go) – on the lawn of Sequoia High. The production runs about two-and-a-half hours – and what you sit on is what you bring, so don’t forget a blanket or a lawn chair. You are welcome to bring food, but even if you have a very cultured pet, you can’t bring the dog (sorry).
