A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Fall 2018

A Midsummer Night's Dream poster

The award winning PCC Theatre Arts program presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the timeless romantic comedy by William Shakespeare. Set in a magical forest near ancient Athens, this play follows blissfully confused lovers, blundering actors, and mischief making magical creatures as they dive into Shakespeare’s unforgettable vision of ludicrous longing, lush language and lasting love. It is filled with Shakespeare’s most memorable quotes, including:

  • “Though she be but little, she is fierce”
  • “Lord, what fools these mortals be”
  • “The course of true love never did run smooth”

This visually stunning romantic comedy is brought to you by the talents of PCC Theatre Arts and Dance Program staff and students.
