The Branson Regional Arts Council has partnered with Forte Theatre Productions to present one of their most unique entertainment events yet, a steampunk version of William Shakespeare’s classic “ A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
There will be four performances of this fun, family friendly show on Sunday July 30th, Monday July 31st , Sunday August 6th, and Monday August 7th at Chad A. Fuqua Memorial Park, 312 Espanade Drive in Historic Hollister. Local area artisans will display their work at 6pm, leading into the pre-show and main performance at 7pm each evening. The show will end before dark, and tickets are available for pre-sale at BransonArts.org or at the park entrance.
Advance ticket prices are $15 for adults, $10 for Students and Branson Regional Arts Council members, and $5 for children ages 12 and under. Audience members should bring their own folding chairs or blankets to sit on.
In a community packed full of amazing live music shows, this Theatre-In-The-Park production is sure to stand out with it’s beautiful outdoor location, clever use of puppetry and imaginative, one-of-a-kind make-up and costumes.
The seasoned troupe of professional actors known as Forte, not only produce a fantastic production, but pave the way for future artists by directing members of the Branson Regional Arts Council’s Youth Troupe, who will perform a pre-show specifically designed for this event.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by Williams Shakespeare over four hundred years ago. The dominant theme is love, and the play portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Thesus, Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, former queen of the Amazons.
