Mill Creek MetroParks’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream rescheduled for Friday

Mill Creek MetroParks and the Mahoning Valley Players have rescheduled the August 2 performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which was canceled due to inclement weather, for Friday, August 8 at 6 p.m. at the Judge Morley Pavilion at the Wick Recreation Area (1861 McCollum Rd. Youngstown, OH 44509). This is free performance with lawn seating; bring a chair or blanket.

William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. These events include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors, who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies that inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world. The performing cast is an assembly of talented Shakespearean actors from the tri-county area.
