What It’s About
On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers (Matt Acquard, Sadie Lockhart, Patrick Jackson, and Kara Sotakoun) 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 (Adam Workman and Haley Janeda) are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom (Giles Davies), Quince (Cornelio Aguilera) and their friends (Martin Powers, Kasondra Rose, Adriana Corso, and Nancy Mizzell) presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck (Katrina Stevenson) 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.
Jobsite again expands education outreach efforts by offering 16 weekday field trip matinee performances for middle and high schools in addition to the 21 scheduled mainstage performances. Education outreach is made possibly by generous grants from the Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation, Saunders Foundation, and Grow Financial Foundation.
