Join Jobsite for another breathtaking production of one of the Bard’s best-loved works. Set in an enchanted forest with fairies, sparring lovers and a group of amateur actors who are putting on a play, this production incorporates aerial and circus performance elements choreographed by Artistic Associate Katrina Stevenson, as well as a completely original score from The Florida Bjorkestra’s Jeremy Douglass.

What It’s About

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted place where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom (Jobsite and Cincinnati Shakespeare Company veteran Giles Davies), Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.

School Performances

Jobsite again expands their education outreach efforts by offering up to 16 weekday field trip matinee performances for middle and high schools in addition to the 17 scheduled mainstage performances.
