A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, focuses on three parallel stories: the trials and experiences of two sets of lovers camping in a magical forest with a meddling Puck, Oberon and Titania, the warring king and queen of the trickster fairies, and a group of rough craftsmen staging a not so good production of Pyramus and Thisby for the wedding of the lovers. Watch these 3 stories intertwine in the most hilarious and bizarre ways. Magic, action, love and humor are the ingredients for this unforgettable story.

“I constantly find myself giggling on the inside when I perform this role,” states Nicole Khoo, performing as Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “the outrageousness of it all will be sure to entertain any crowd”
