Skakespeare Kelowna is going back into the fresh air in 2018.
Our summer production is A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Tracy Ross and produced by Stephen Jefferys.
William Shakespeare’s most popular comedy was written around 1594. It 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.

Show dates: Wednesdays to Saturdays, July 18-28, 2018 at Spierhead Winery in East Kelowna.
