“A Midsummer Night's Dream” Presented by Rural Alliance for the Arts

Batesville, IN, July 19, 2016 – What happens when feuding fairies meddle in the love lives of human couples? Comical adventures, mistaken identities, and a silly play-within-a-play in William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night's Dream” presented by Rural Alliance for the Arts (RAA) and performed by a six member cast from the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. Everyone in the community is welcome to enjoy this free performance at Liberty Park in Batesville on Thursday, August 4th at 7:00 PM.

“A Midsummer Night's Dream,” directed by Caitlin McWethy, will incorporate some exciting and brand new costume and scenic design as well as hip-hop infused original music created in collaboration with Elementz. The Actors will have amplified voices on microphones and speakers, and it is suitable for children and families of all ages. The RAA recommends bringing a lawn chair or blanket to sit back, relax, and enjoy this comical adventure that is under 2 hours in length.

Admission to “A Midsummer Night's Dream” is free. There is no ticket or RSVP required and seating is general admission and open. The production is part of a 30 performance tour called “Shakespeare in the Park” that also includes productions of “Romeo and Juliet” and “Macbeth” and tours Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky through September 1st.
