Subject: Perfect Recipe for Mirth & Merriment

Although Shakespeare's comedies are typically suitable for most all ages, our fun show focuses a bit more playfully on the sexuality of the characters, so do bear this in mind before bringing anybody to this show who may be offended or surprised by such behaviors.  We hope you do join us for this summer story that's a recipe for mirth & merriment - & that you'll be amazed at how we make it rain inside the theatre!

UA's Arizona Repertory Theatre presents William Shakespeare's


Stephen Wrentmore, Guest Director from Arizona Theatre Company

Join us as we close out our season with one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. Filled with lovers, fairies and rustics, A Midsummer Night's Dream has something for everyone. Add a misapplied love potion, mistaken identities and the most famous play-within-a play ever written, and you have a perfect recipe for mirth. The language, poetry, and wit of Shakespeare shine as bright and as lovely as the moon in this timeless classic.
