A Midsummer Night's Dream

The event is NOT sold out. Admission is FREE to celebrate the return of live events and tickets are not required. We encourage audiences to bring their own folding/beach chairs or blankets to sit on the lawn and enjoy the show.


A joyful explosion of vivid chaos for ‘the course of true love never did run smooth.’

Under the towering trees of the Mayer Lawn, love triangles, mistaken identities, and mischievous transformations ensue in this outdoor performance of Shakespeare's most famous romantic comedy. Four love-drunk teens; a troupe of well-meaning, woefully amateur actors; the Fairy Queen and King at war; and one rogue spirit hell-bent on entertaining himself and causing as much havoc as possible. What could possibly go wrong? 


As this is an outdoor performance, masks are recommended but not required. SCU•Presents strongly recommends individuals who are eligible for vaccination to consider the COVID-19 vaccine.

Worried about rain? We have a plan!

If a performance is moved inside or cancelled due to rain, we will update audiences on our In Case Of Rain page by 10:00 a.m. the morning of the performance. Be advised that if the performance is moved indoors, audiences are expected to adhere to all SCU•Presents COVID Safety Protocols.
