June 13-16 and June 22 & 23 at 8 p.m.
Legacy Gazebo Amphitheater on the Kennesaw campus of KSU | $10-27

The first play for Shakespeare Kennesaw, scheduled for mid-June, is A Midsummer Night's Dream to be performed under the stars at the outdoor Legazy Gazebo Amphitheatre on the Kennesaw campus. The Gazebo will be transformed into an Elizabethan outdoor playhouse for the production, one of Shakespeare's most popular plays.

Directed by Rick Lombardo, Chair of the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies, the play is one of Shakespeare's happiest comedies, featuring crossed loves, fairy spells and strange transformations. A Midsummer Night's Dream portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. These events include the adventures of four young Athenians lovers and a group of six amateur actors, who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest. 

Mark your calendars and don't miss this spectacular production. Tickets will be on sale for the production running Wednesdays to Saturdays, June 13-16 and June 20-23 at 8 p.m. Arrive early for the introduction to the play at 7:30 p.m.
