Join us at the Lick Creek Nature Center Amphitheater for Shakespeare in the Park performed by Blinn-Bryan Theatre Troupe. In this one-act adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy, four players in a traveling clown troupe wake up one morning to discover that they have been abandoned by the other members of the company. That evening they are required to perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream before the local Squire and they have to madly re-invent the play so that it can be done with four clowns. The play starts at 6:30 p.m. and activity booths will be available before the show. Tickets are limited.
