Midsommer Flight’s annual summer production of free Shakespeare in Chicago parks. One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, it concerns young lovers who must fight stubborn and controlling fathers as well as the magic of mischievous fairies on their way to marriage to their true loves. A band of amateur actors have their own problems and add to the general confusion. Magic, marriages, and music mix to form an enchanting comedy for the ages.
Audiences are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic to enjoy this free programming. Reservations are not required but will be available on the company’s website in June for audience members who wish to receive event reminders, last minute weather cancellation information, COVID updates, and more. Seating is first come, first served, and audience members can bring their own blankets or chairs. Show information on website at www.midsommerflight.com, including detailed schedule and info about directions and parking at each park.
