Description

Silicon Valley Shakespeare Features All-Female Cast in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Friday evening, June 7, 2019, at 7:00p.m., Silicon Valley Shakespeare (SVS) begins its 7th annual production at Willow Street Park in San Jose featuring an all-female cast in the Shakespeare classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Part of their Free Shakespeare in the Park series, this twist on the family-friendly comedy kicks off the summer season for SVS, as they celebrate their 21st season of bringing vibrant and affordable theatrical experiences to a diverse audience of theatregoers.

While the king and queen of the fairies, Oberon and Titania, are quarreling, Oberon's right-hand sprite, Puck, is ready for mischief... And with humans such as the young Athenian lovers running about, and the troupe of amateur actors trying to rehearse a play for the Duke's nuptial day in the middle of the fairy's forest, it couldn't be easier. 

Under the direction of Cindy Weisberg, the women of Midsummer exemplify the magic, mischief, and wonder of this Shakespeare favorite.
