Shakespeare’s madcap comedy comes to life as a musical set in post-World War II. Set in Athens, Indiana, we find Oberon and Titania in heated battle for diner supremacy while Puck creates mischief with four young lovers lost in a hayfield, and Bottom and friends rehearse their play to perform at the mayor’s wedding!
