Shakespeare in the Park

A Midsummer Night's Dream 

Join us at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 17, for a free performance of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in Island Park. Elgin-based Goodly Creatures Theatre will perform this light-hearted comedy, a classic tale of runaway lovers, a play-within-a-play and fairy feuds! This lively and engaging performance of The Bard’s beloved play is suitable for audiences of all ages. 

Seating begins at 4 p.m. for this outdoor performance. The audience is encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics. 

The play features actors from across the Chicago area. Goodly Creatures is a traveling theater company founded by Katrina Syrris, an alumna of the Midsummer Theater Troupe that previously performed at Geneva’s Shakespeare in the Park. Syrris, who is also an artistic director, specializes in breathing new life into classic works of literature and making them accessible to all.
