"Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
BARD ON THE BAY 2017 PRESENTED...
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Theatre Georgian Bay held its 2nd annual Bard on the Bay performance in Collingwood with Shakespeare's mischievous romantic comedy, "A Midsummer Night's Dream". OUTDOORS at the Collingwood Amphitheatre on Sundays at 1pm & 6pm and Monday evenings at 6pm.
Our Bard on the Bay performances were offered to the community as a pay-as-you-are-able event. Our goal is to make theatre accessible and affordable for our audiences. This way, families can all come and enjoy an evening of theatre without breaking the bank.
Please note all performances will run rain or shine unless it proves dangerous to do so. We suggest that you bring blankets, umbrellas, hats, sunscreen, jackets, cushions, chairs or anything else to make yourself comfortable and prepared for the weather. Water and other refreshments will be available on site.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” William Shakespeare's most popular comedy portrays the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with woodland fairies and a duke and duchess. Taking place in a mythical Athens and an enchanted forest, there is a handsome fairy king, a misguided parent, star-crossed lovers, a weaver who's transformed into a half-donkey, wood sprites and elves. This work is widely performed around the world, and no wonder - it's about the world's most popular pastime, falling in love. But as Puck knows, falling in love can make fools of us all.
