Delta Drama brings William Shakespeare’s renowned romantic comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to life starting Nov. 30, with a modern take on this well-known classic that will make you question what you thought you knew about the timeless play and about Shakespeare himself.

This is not the fluffy fairy tale you are used to.

Take a wild ride with the starry-eyed lovers and mischief-making fairies to a dream-like world where nothing is impossible. The Delta Drama actors take a breath at the top and don’t exhale until the curtain comes down.
