A Midsummer Night’s Dream

August 18, 2013 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Elements Theatre Company of Cape Cod kicks off its 2013-14 season, dedicated to celebrating the 450thanniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth, with one of his most popular comedies, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Set in modern-day Central Park, this comedy of love in its many guises brings together star-crossed lovers, quarreling kings and queens, mischievous fairy sprites and a ragtag troupe of traveling players all caught under the summer moon’s intoxicating spell. Romance and ruminations of grandeur run rampant, and it’s difficult to tell the difference between the lovers, lost souls, and fools. Performances are August 9-11 and 16-18 at 7:30 p.m., Paraclete House, Rock Harbor, Orleans. Tickets are $30, $25 for seniors; free for 18 and under and may be purchased by calling 508-240-2400. A special dinner package is available August 10, 16 and 17 for $60, $55 for seniors; $18 for 18 and under. Dinner is served on the patio at 6 p.m. before the show.
