Mackenzie Beimer (Snug the Joiner/Lion/Peaseblossom), Sarah Bender (Robin Starveling/Moonshine/Cobweb), Randy Benge (Theseus/Oberon), Sean Bennet (Lysander), Greg Bobak (Egeus/Philostrate), Liane Golightly-Kissner (Hippolyta/Titania), Stephen Grinch (Peter Quince), Brian Henry (Demetrius), Greg Kissner (Nick Bottom/Pyramus), Hailey Marshall (Helena), Patrick Petrilla (Francis Flute/Thisbe/Moth), Anna Soppelsa (Hermia), Richard Stage (Tom Snout/Wall/Mustardseed), & Frisk Stage (Puck)

As the wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta draws near, all is not well: Hermia and Lysander wish to wed, but Hermia's father wants her to marry Demetrius. Furthermore, Hermia's best friend Helena is in love with Demetrius, but he only has eyes for Hermia. The young lovers flee into the woods hoping to escape their problems, only to be followed by Helena and Demetrius, and all four of them find themselves in the crossfire of the discord between the king and queen of the fairies. Throw in a group of blue-collar workmen trying to mount a play for Theseus and Hippolyta, and you have Shakespeare's classic tale of love, betrayal, and forgiveness.
