This Saturday is your last chance to catch Short Shakespeare! A Midsummer Night’s Dream—a 75-minute abridgment of William Shakespeare’s riotous tale of mismatched love.

This must-see production brings the magic to life for young audiences in the Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s  innovative, new venue The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare on its final Saturday, March 10,  at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

This kid-friendly adaptation celebrates the magic conjured by the chance meetings of characters from different walks of life. Join in the merriment as four young lovers set out for the forest, where an amateur theater troupe is rehearsing. But when the Fairy Court discovers mortals in their midst, mischief ensues until dawn.

After each performance, the actors remain on stage for a question-and-answer session before joining the audience in the Lobby for one-on-one conversation and photo opportunities.

Tickets are just $22 for students ages 18 & under and $34 for adults: visit www.chicagoshakes.com/ssmidsummer to purchase.
