The Plot: 

She loves him, and he loves her, but her mother's having none of it. What are young lovers to do? Steal away to the forest and elope! What could possibly go wrong? Meanwhile, with the Duke's own wedding fast approaching, preparations are underway. An unlikely cast of Athenian tradespersons and would-be thespians is preparing a play for the occasion. Into that same forest they go to rehearse their amateur theatricals. But this forest is home to fairies and plants with potent juices. There, mischief, mayhem, and frivolity ensue.  

This show is appropriate for audience members of all ages.

Approximately 2 Hours 30 minutes, with one 10 minute intermission
