A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM by William Shakespeare


"Lovers and madmen have such seething brains..."

Shakespeare’s most notorious comic romp gets dreamt up as a Gallaudet staging at last, coinciding with the First Folio’s stay at Kendall Green. Four worlds collide, sparking an epic imbroglio of misrule, with a magic love flower, a Robin, and an ass in the middle of it all.  What happens in the forest, stays in the forest...right?

The role of Bottom will be played by renowned Deaf stage, TV, and film actor Howie Seago, and Puck Prime by Miranda Medugno. Our production marks the first time two deaf Helen Hayes Award winners have been cast in the same play.

Free, on-campus parking is available. This performance will have a spoken English accompaniment.

This is age-appropriate for patrons 12 years old and up (children who are 5 years old or younger will not be permitted in the theatre). Seating is limited to 95 seats per show.
