June is finally here, and Summer Shakespeare is back in action! This summer, we are celebrating our 30th year!
To celebrate, we’re returning to an old favorite of ours: A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
This year, though, there is a twist:
Summer Shakes has always performed in the theater generously provided by the high school which houses it (first at Kenosha, then at Appleton North). For many students, the theatre is a home and a haven. It is a place to make magic and community.
This year, though, we are emerging from our Cave of Wonders to take our enchantments into the wilds. We will be performing Shakespeare’s comedy of romance, a mysterious forest, and fairy magic at the Refuge in Appleton.
We are so excited to partner with Tara Pohlkotte and the wonderful work she is doing to give the arts a home in Appleton.
