Description

A Shakespeare in the City Production
in collaboration with Historic St. Mary's City. 

This show takes place outdoors. There will be NO CASH SALES for this performance. Tickets bought online will be the ONLY tickets accepted.

First performed around 1596, Shakespeare's comic fantasy of four lovers who find themselves bewitched by fairies is a sly reckoning with love, jealousy and marriage. For centuries it’s been one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays.

Four Athenians run away to the forest only to have the fairy, Puck,  make both of the boys fall in love with the same girl. The four run through the forest pursuing each other while Puck helps his master play a trick on the fairy queen. In the end, Puck reverses the magic, and the two couples reconcile and marry.

 

Children 5 and under are granted free admission

The Newtowne Players
The mission of the Newtowne Players is to promote all aspects of the performing arts in Southern Maryland. We provide an outlet for people in the community who are interested in theatre in any capacity at all. Whether their interest is performing, directing, writing, make up, costume design or technical support, we provide opportunities for all through education, growth and hands on experience of working as a volunteer in any of these areas of theatre. In the process, we provide quality entertainment to the surrounding communities. Our goal is to foster, promote and increase the public knowledge and appreciation of the arts and cultural activities in St. Mary's County and Southern Maryland, and to make live theatre affordable and available to as many members of the surrounding communities as possible.
