Theatre of Dare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” wraps this weekend

Theatre of Dare’s first-ever full-fledged Shakespeare production, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” wraps up its run this weekend at Roanoke Island Festival Park’s Indoor Theater in Manteo.

One of the Bard’s most popular works for the stage, portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons.

These include the romantic entanglements of four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors who wander into a nearby forest and wind up controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit it. Throw in a magical love potion and a donkey’s head, and you’ve got all the ingredients of a wacky take on famous Greek legends.

You won’t want to miss this unique and beautiful, yet funny, Theatre of Dare production.

Showtimes are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at

Refreshments will be available in the lobby before the show and at intermission, with proceeds to benefit the Friends of Elizabeth II.
