Ensemble Member Emma Ackerman and the Touchstone/Moravian MFA class of 2022 present a light-hearted, abstracted, immersive reimagining of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in collaboration with Columcille Megalith Park in Bangor. Put on your walking shoes and a flower crown, wander in the woods with us, catch sight of a fairy or two, and enjoy an evening of music, magic, and whimsy as we explore Shakespeare’s classic fantasy in one of the hidden gems of our local parks.
