In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare weaves together three stories about a passionate group of young lovers, an eager troupe of amateur actors, and a dangerous world of fairies and magic. Dealing with themes of intimacy, deception, friendship, music, and love, this timeless tale will be beautifully in the Thoreau College Amphitheater!
* Appx. runtime: 90 minutes

Pre-show festivities also include music from area musicians. Guests can expect a fiddle or a flute or a brave voice to fill the air, while the campus grounds will open for picnicking and socializing under the summer sun.
* 5pm: Picnic with music from various local artists
* 7pm: A Midsummer Night’s Dream performance

Admission for the weekend festival is free of charge! Bring your own blanket or lawn chair.

The mission of the Viroqua Shakespeare Festival is to support the American theater at the grassroots level by creating a context for collaboration between non-union professional actors, early career theatre-artists, theater educators, and actor-artists from local communities. The Viroqua Shakespeare Festival was founded in 2022, the result of a collaboration between Thoreau College and our friends at the Jones Classical Theater Company! Under the direction of Willie E. Jones III, a troupe of guest actors from around the United States will perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream alongside a cast of Viroqua-area locals including theater educators and actor-artists of all stripes.
