Set at a 1960s beach party, with a musical soundtrack of classic Beach Boys and The Mamas and the Papas tunes, the story is a reimagined take on the classic Shakespeare comedy through the lens of what we call “Shakesqueer.” What happens when the Athenian mortals find themselves at the mercy of the Beatnik fairies? Join us for a comedic romp about the perils of love and the power of transformation.

In the event of cancellation we will contact you regarding either a refund or options for a different performance.
