Overview

And yet to say the truth, reason, and love keep little company together nowadays.” -- William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream You CAN keep company with Mixolo solos and theater enthusiasts for an evening under the stars for Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s outdoor performance of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream." We’ll dine on local fare at our reserved picnic tables while we enjoy this open-air production in the stunning Patapsco Female Institute, the stabilized ruins of a girls’ finishing school, now the summer home of the theater company. Shakespeare’ endearing and enduring comedy, A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream is a dream for Shakespeare enthusiasts who can’t get enough the most widely performed Shakespeare play, and the “gateway” play for Shakespeare newbies or skeptics. Escape - not too far away - to witness Shakespeare’s most epic story of the struggle between imagination and reason. You can imagine this classic comedy coming to life among the stars on a summer night in the woods at the highest point in Ellicott City, Maryland. Tales of magic, dreams and love’s challenges will be intertwined and discovered on the beautiful open-air stage of the beautifully preserved ruins of the Patapsco Female Institute.

Bouts of hilarity and delight are inevitable during the performance with antics from the slapstick to the fantastical as Shakespeare weaves four subplots into a story of the difficulties of love and the beauty of dreams with the timeless themes of complicated family ties, class warfare and romantic entanglements that challenge those boundaries. Throw in Cupid and some fairy dust and abandon reason for an evening.
