Between the striking visuals and sound design, the tasteful integration of detail and the cast’s mastery of Shakespeare, the performance was nothing short of breathtaking.
The story opens on the young lovers Hermia (Arielle Yoder) and Lysander (Schuyler Scott Mastain) who are forced apart by Hermia’s betrothal to Demetrius (William Hughes). Hoping to remain together, they flee into the woodland domain of the fairies and enter into a realm of dreams.

At the same time, a comical troop of actors ventures into the woods to rehearse, falling victim to the will of the capricious king and queen of fairies.
From start to finish, the set and sound design transported the audience and characters from the real world into this realm of magic.
