A Midsummer Night’s Dream (edited)

by William Shakespeare

Adapted by C. Michael Perry

Shakespeare’s delightful comic romp of highborn, lowborn, Faerie, Human, magic, common sense, and sheer hilarity has been edited to under 2 hours as well as including an original Elizabethan-type music score set to Shakespeare’s lyrics. It is not a musical, any more that the original play was during Shakespeare’s time — but it does have songs in it.  Perfect for High School and College Theatre Departments, and Youth Theatre Groups.
