New Stage Theatre’s Youth Acting Troupe presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595, in the Mississippi Museum of Art’s Art Garden. The popular play portrays the adventures of young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies inhabiting the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world. New Stage Theatre will perform a 60-minute abridged version. This event is free and open to the public.
