Beginning Sunday, June 12, Theatricum brings back its signature production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by company favorite Melora Marshall. An annual season staple going back decades, Theatricum’s wooded stage morphs into the enchanted woods of Athens, where mortal lovers chase and are chased, players prepare, and fairies make magical mischief in Shakespeare’s most entertaining and beguiling comedy. Both shows will run through October 2nd. Call (310) 455-3723 or visit theatricum.com for tickets and more information.
