A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the Prairie
Tickets are now on sale for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the maiden production of the Lyric Theatre’s first season of The Great Southwest Shakespeare Festival.
Rehearsals have begun and the cast of 13 actors is preparing for the 15-show run, which starts July 26. The actors will perform under the magic of the moon in a blue and white tent nestled by the trees at Riverside Park in Swift Current.
Currently, the cast is rehearsing at the Lyric Theatre and will soon relocate to Riverside Park when the tent is raised in early July. The atmosphere inside the tent will be cozy and low-tech - like a picnic in the park. Guests are encouraged to bring their lawn/camping chairs to sit on (please, no gravity chairs, long lounge chairs, or high-back chairs), a snack to enjoy - and mosquito repellent.
Great Southwest Shakespeare Festival show dates are: July 26, 27, 30, 31, August 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17. All show times are 8:00 PM. Buy your tickets now at Pharmasave, or at Market Square.
