A Midsummer Night's Dream
It's all fun and games until someone gets turned into a donkey.
Three storylines interweave as four young lovers run into an enchanted forest in the name of true love. The fairies intervene with magic and more than a dash of mischief! In the forest, a group of amateur actors rehearse a hilariously bad play. As the King and the Queen of the Fairies are quarreling, the King of the Fairies, instructs his sprite, Puck, to turn one of the foolish players into a donkey, and the Fairy Queen, falls madly in love with him!!
This fast-paced, highly physical production from Shakespeare All Stars is a wonderful way to introduce audiences of all ages to Shakespeare.
Bring A Midsummer Night's Dream to your school or book a field trip! Field Trips available on April 30 at 10:30 pm in Palatine and May 2 at 10:30 am in Chicago!

Touring Performance: That Is the Question: Shakespeare Scenes & Trivia
Part performance, part quiz show, the All-Stars ask questions about the life and works of Shakespeare, interspersing relevant scenes. In the bonus rounds, audience members are invited onstage to compete in insane challenges! A fun, interactive way to review the plays you are studying!
Originally devised for the 25th Annual Rhinoceros Theater Festival, curated by Curious Theatre Branch, That Is the Question can be customized for adults to be like Trivia Night at their favorite bar or for students as the perfect game to review the plays they are reading.
